Did you know? The average household wastes 180 gallons of water per week due to leaks, amounting to 9,400 gallons annually per household and a staggering 900 billion gallons nationwide. Runoff from outdoor leaks carries pollutants like pet waste, trash, yard debris, and chemicals into storm drains, harming local waterways and ecosystems.
Audit Your Irrigation System: Adjust it to spray only on your landscape, not on driveways or streets.
Check for Breaks: Fix broken sprinklers and adjust timing to avoid overwatering.
Stop Leaks: Replace leaky hoses, saving water and preventing pollution.
Reduce Watering Time: Prevent runoff by routinely adjusting watering duration. As the weather cools down or warms up, your watering time will need to be updated.
