Importance of Water Conservation
Drinking water is a precious resource that must be managed and used wisely. Please do your part by using a little less water and not wasting it, so that we may continue to meet demand throughout the summer.

Lawn watering accounts for over half the drinking water used for summertime activities. Under region-wide regulations in effect May 1 through October 15, residential lawn watering is allowed one day per week at set times determined by address.
