- Help keep your utility bill to a minimum. Reduce your water consumption in the winter months by TURNING OFF your irrigation system.
- During these cooler months, water once per month, as needed. This is not the growing season, so plants and grass do not need much water. Generally rainfall will provide enough water that supplemental water is not needed.
- Do not water during the heat of the day.
- During cooler temperatures and after rain events, turn the irrigation system off and run it manually when needed.
- Visit Water Conservation and read the Water Spot blog for irrigation how-to videos, conservation rebate programs, and more!
