Water Use

Outdoor Water Conservation

Water usage during summer months almost doubles due to outdoor activities such as lawn watering, car washing and filling of swimming pools.  It is estimated that nearly half of this water use is wasted to evaporation loss, run-off and over-watering.  Turfgrasses only need 3/4 - 1 inch of water per week to maintain green color and active growth.
