Water conservation should be a daily, year-round habit to help in conserving our island’s most precious resource.
Here are some tips and ideas on how to conserve water all season long:
ADJUST YOUR SPRINKLER/IRRIGATION SYSTEM:
Adjust your sprinkler timer and remember to turn it off when it rains.
REDIRECT GUTTER SPOUTS TO LANDSCAPE AREAS:
Turn the down spout of your gutter towards your garden or landscape areas during rainy season.
INSTALL WATER EFFICIENT FAUCETS:
Replace your shower head and faucets with water saving devices. Install aerators and flow regulators to make your home conservation-friendly.
MONTHLY LEAK CHECKS:
A small leak in your home can account for over 10,000 gallons of water waste per month! Schedule a monthly inspection of your home’s faucets, toilets, showers and irrigation systems.
In the fall, take advantage of the anticipated wet weather and plan to grow crops that will enjoy and thrive in the cooler climate.
