Spring Into Water-Wise Routines

Posted: Monday, March 11, 2024

As temperatures increase and rainfall decreases, it’s time for residents and businesses to plan for a water-wise spring.

Mesa Water customers understand the importance of water use efficiency. Since most indoor water use is captured and recycled, efficient outdoor water use is where the community can make the greatest impact.

Kickoff spring with these helpful tips to encourage water use efficiency around your home or business:

  • Plant California-friendly trees and plants.
  • Adjust sprinkler heads and fix leaks.
  • Invest in a smart sprinkler timer.
  • Cover bare soil with mulch.

Remember that requirements around wasteful water use remain in place. While grass at residential properties or grass used for recreation and community events can be watered according to Mesa Water’s suggested efficient watering schedule, a ban on watering any grass at commercial, industrial and institutional properties that is non-functional remains in effect. Please note these other important requirements:

  • Wait to water lawns until 48 hours after rainfall.
  • Use hoses with shut-off nozzles when washing vehicles or watering landscaping.
  • Sweep instead of hosing down hard or paved surfaces.
