Conservation Corner: Save Money for the Holidays by Being Water Efficient!

Here are a few water efficiency tips that will save you both water and money this winter season:

  • During the winter months reduce your watering to once a week and keep sprinklers off during the rain to keep your garden healthy. Check out our Recommended Watering Schedule for guidance.
  • Prevent overwatering by switching to a smart sprinkler timer. These devices water according to weather conditions and only when your landscape needs it. Rebates are available to offset the costs and information can be found at
  • After you enjoy your holiday meal, try to reduce the number of loads of dishes you have to do and make sure your dishwasher is fully loaded every time you run it.
  • Looking for the perfect gift? Water-efficient appliances can make great gifts and great water savers.
