Remember, you can save water!

Did you know that individually we use about 77 gallons of water each day? In spite of the dry summer we are having, it’s important to remember that overwatering our lawns can easily carry pollution to the storm drains and then to our lakes and streams.

Here are some simple steps you can take to use less water to maintain a healthy lawn and help keep our water clean. Give them a try. A few simple changes can make a big difference!
