Water Knowledge Tips:

As runoff flows over paved, dirt, and landscaped surfaces, it can pick up debris, chemicals, soil and other pollutants as it flows untreated into the nearest creek or lake.

WaterSmart Tips:

Adjust your watering schedule each month to match seasonal weather conditions and landscape requirements.

Use drip irrigation for shrubs and trees to apply water directly to the roots, where it’s needed.

WaterShed Smart Tips:

Consider permeable alternatives for driveways, patios and walkways that allow water to soak into the soil and reduce runoff.

Use bricks or blocks set in sand, gravel, or wood chips.
