New Water Rules & Tips for Conservation

News | 2nd Jun 2010

DSCF0259 3 Starting this week, San Diego residents have new water rules.  That’s right; a new restricted watering schedule has been introduced. 

Lawns can be watered up to three days a week, depending on your address, before 10 a.m. or after 6 p.m. for up to ten minutes at a time.  That’s 3 minutes more than previous restrictions allowed.  These water restrictions will be in effect until October.  The reason behind the timed water restriction is to limit the amount of evaporation that occurs when watering is done mid-day. 

The following tips from www.livestrong.com suggest 5 more ways you can conserve water in your home.

Laundry – Only do full loads and save up to 1,000 gallons.

Dishes – Fill up the sink while washing or rinsing instead of letting water flow. Use rinse water for general cleaning or plant watering.

Sweep – Sweep your driveway and outside walks instead of hosing it down

Time Limits – Reduce your shower to five minutes and use less water when bathing.

Displacement – Place bricks or filled plastic bottles in your toilet.

Educate – Check http://wateruseitwisely.com/region/arizona/water-challenge/ to see if there are more, easy ways that you and your family can reduce your water use.

Since the water restrictions began a year ago, San Diegans have reduced water use by about 12% according to the city.  Way to go!
