See how to use the latest innovations and simple steps to save.
Business properties with lawn and landscaping may save water by replacing it with a water-wise landscape. You can also save water by replacing toilets installed before 2014 with new, low-flow toilets and reduce water use 20%. In multi-family homes, toilets are the biggest water users.
- Use short duration watering times, leaving at least a day in between for water to soak into the soil.
- Reposition your irrigation system so it doesn't spray surrounding surfaces that water can't soak into (i.e., the sidewalk).
- Have your landscape begin a distance from the street or driveway.
- In planting areas next to streets or driveways, avoid using overhead irrigation systems.
