The Water Conservation Program and its experienced staff will now offer free educational phone consultations to customers on the topics of leak detection, landscape and irrigation. 

Service

Low-maintenance landscapes are great, but there’s no such thing as a “no-maintenance” irrigation system. A single broken sprinkler head flowing at 15 gallons per minute will waste 900 gallons in one hour of use. So service your system regularly, and check it often for leaks and malfunctions.

Settings

Adjust your irrigation time by season! For turf, water by the Numbers: One day per week in March, two days per week in April and May, three days per week in summer, and ramp down in the fall. For other landscapes, follow the watering recommendations.

Selection

Choose desert-friendly plants that thrive in our dry climate. There are literally hundreds of plant options to choose from, and rebates are available for replacing turf with a desert-friendly landscape.
