Summer is here and it is the season when we use the most water. Remember to not water during the peak heat time of day, water early mornings and late evening. To help water your plants you can use a rain barrel to collect rain water off of your eaves trough, it is free water! If you are washing your car on the driveway use a bucket and a sponge instead of leaving the hose on, or take to a car wash. The benefit of using a car wash is the water flows into the sewer system to be treated at the waste water treatment plant instead of running down the street to a storm water drain collecting contaminants along the way. Do your part to be water smart!
