Smart Irrigation Month

July is Smart Irrigation Month, an opportunity to celebrate saving water outdoors through efficient watering
practices. Whether you have an internet-connected in-ground sprinkler system or use a good, old-fashioned
hose, you can save water this summer with a few smart practices:
• Water your landscape before 10:00 a.m. or after 6:00 p.m. when temperatures are cooler and the sun is
lower to minimize evaporation
• Create a watering schedule: water deeply twice a week instead of every day
• Sign up to receive the Weekly Watering Number via text or email to find out how much to water each
week based on your zip code
Hot weather means more water use across the region, and making sure you’re watering smart helps ensure
that we use our natural resources efficiently. Everyone can do their part to use water wisely, indoors and
outdoors. It’s just the right thing to do.
