Water Wise Tips

Several federal and state agencies offer these water-saving tips:

  • Check all faucets, pipes and toilets for leaks.

  • Never use your toilet as an ashtray or wastebasket – throw it away, don’t flush it.

  • Defrost frozen food in the refrigerator.

  • Rinse dishes and vegetables in a full sink or pan of water instead of running water.

  • Install water saving shower heads and ultra-low-flush toilets.

  • Water your lawn or garden early in the morning or late in evening.

  • Equip all hoses with shut-off nozzles.

  • Use drip irrigation systems.

  • Plant drought-tolerant or low water-use plants and grasses.

  • Place mulch around plants to reduce evaporation and discourage weeds.

  • Set your mower blades one notch higher, since longer grass means less evaporation.

  • Use a pool cover to cut down on water evaporation.

  • Use a bucket instead of a hose to wash your car.

  • Sweep driveways, sidewalks, and steps rather than hosing them off.

  • Take a short shower instead of a tub bath.

  • Scrape, rather than rinse, dishes before loading them into the dishwasher.

  • Raise your lawn mower cutting height - longer grass blades help shade each other, reduce evaporation, and inhibit weed growth.
