Water Conservation

Water is essential to our everyday lives and our supplies are limited. Springville City is asking its residents to conserve water this summer.

If every resident cut their water use inside and outside of the home, billions of gallons of water could be saved. Below are some ways that you can help to conserve water this season:

 

WATER CONSERVATION TIPS

• Avoid watering lawns between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.

• Test soil moisture with a soil probe or screwdriver before you water. If the soil is moist, don’t water!

• Turn off sprinklers during a rain storm or consider installing an automatic rain shutoff device on your sprinkler system.

• Aerate your lawn.

• Avoid watering your lawn on windy days.

• Watch for broken sprinklers and fix them quickly.

• Raise mower height to leave grass longer.

• Fix leaky plumbing fixtures, faucets and appliances in the house.

• Plant drought resistant trees and plants.

• Clean cement with a broom instead of a hose.

• Put a pitcher of water in the fridge instead of letting the tap run.

• Turn the water off when you are brushing your teeth.

• Take short showers (five minutes or less).

• Show children how to turn off the faucets completely after each use.

• Ensure the toilet flapper valve doesn’t stay open after flushing.

• Only do full loads of laundry.

• Fix leaky plumbing fixtures, faucets and appliances in the house.
