We’ve all done it, made a New Year’s resolution only to abandon it midway through January. 

Why not make a resolution this year that’s easy to accomplish and that benefits not only you but your neighbors and our community as well? For example, why not take a pledge to use water efficiently in the coming year!  

Simple changes in your day-to-day life can equal significant savings over the course of a year. You’ll not only save water, but you’ll also do something helpful for our planet. Check out these low and no-cost tips, or visit our website to learn more ways to save. 

  • Turn off the water while brushing your teeth 
  • Run only full loads in your dishwasher or washing machine

  • Replace turf and switch to desert landscape
  • Check and repair indoor and outdoor drips and leaks  
  • Use a broom instead of a hose to clean your patio, sidewalk, or driveway 
  • Change your irrigation controller with the seasons or get a smart controller
