Outdoor Water Conservation Tips
- When using a hose, use a nozzle that stops the flow of water when the handle is released.
Water early or late in the day, not midday when water evaporates more quickly.
Replace some of your lawn with a deck, patio or low-water use plants.
Sweep driveways and sidewalks with a broom instead of hosing them off.
Apply a thick layer of mulch around your plants to reduce evaporation (this also helps to suppress weeds).
Wash your car at a commercial car wash where they recycle the wash water.
