Home Water Conservation

We had heavy snowfall this past winter that has helped to pull Utah out of our long draught.  However, we still live in a desert and it is extremely important to conserve all of the water that we can.  Follow these tips to be 'water wise'.  

•  Adjust the float level in your toilet to reduce the water required to flush. l

•  Limit shower time.

•  Install a flow-control device in your showers.

•  Don’t use your clothes washing machine with less than a full load.

•  Use a pan of water when peeling and cleaning vegetables and fruits rather than letting the sink tap run.

•  Run the dishwasher only when it is completely full, and scrape rather than rinse dishes that go in the dishwasher.

•  Water the lawn less frequently and only at night to reduce evaporation losses.

•  Remove weeds promptly – they rob other plants of water.

•  Mow less – mowing puts grass under stress, which makes it need more water.

•  Mulch shrubs and garden plants to retain moisture in the soil longer.
