WaterShed Smart Tips:

Identify places where water is causing erosion as it drains off your property.

Slow the flow with natural ground cover and divert water to landscape vegetation.

WaterSmart Tips:

Use 2 to 4 inches of organic mulch around plants to reduce evaporation and save hundreds of gallons of water a year.

Water Knowledge Tips:

Protect the native vegetation along a creek or wash, known as the "riparian buffer."

Riparian vegetation protects property and water quality by stabilizing stream banks, reducing erosion, filtering out pollutants, and provides habitat for birds and wildlife.
