From the Washington County Water Conservancy District Newsletter:

“Show you care by using water wisely this month.

We live in one of the driest and fastest-growing areas of the state and have a limited water supply. But, thanks to you, our community members, we are making every drop count. Last year, we saved more than 400 million gallons of water despite a 5% increase in population… that’s love! Let’s save even more in 2022!

Following are some easy ways to save:

Outdoors

  • Follow the seasonal watering schedule
  • Don’t irrigate on rainy or windy days
  • Limit grass to functional areas
  • Use water-efficient plants
  • Replace or repair leaking irrigation equipment

Indoors

  • Turn off the tap while brushing teeth or shaving
  • Shorten showers
  • Take showers instead of baths
  • Fix indoor leaks like running toilets
  • Use a plugged sink when hand washing dishes
