It’s been an abnormally hot summer this year, and the board of water supply is encouraging everyone to conserve water during the dry climate.

Steve Norstrom, Public Information Specialist, suggests one major way to conserve water is to water your lawn properly. You should water 2-3 times a week before 9 am and after 5 pm. This helps to promote deeper root growth and better water absorption. Another way to conserve water is to periodically check for leaks in your home. Turn off all the water and listen for leakage. The sound of running water or dripping could be a sign of a faulty flap or a leak.

The Board of Water Supply carries many products you can use to conserve water and save money. One of these products is a weather-based irrigation controller. This controller connects to local weather stations in the area and only irrigates when needed. They also have foldable plastic water jugs you can use in case of a hurricane. Rain barrels are an amazing tool to use to collect water for your plants or lawn without using your own water. If you are in the mood for a new washer, Norstrom recommends purchasing a water efficient Energy Star washing machine. All these products are eligible for the Board of Water Supply Water Sensible Rebate Program.
