Step on the Grass and $ave!!!

Peak water use season describes the time of year when communities experience their highest spike in water use—and their biggest water supply challenges. The average home uses 260 gallons of water per day, but that can rise to 1,000 gallons per day during peak watering season, and some homes can use as much as 3,000 gallons on a peak day!

Viewer Tip: To make sure you’re watering only when your lawn needs it, step on your grass. If it springs back, then it doesn’t need water. If it does need water, sprinkle in the early morning or late evening, when it’s a bit cooler, so the water doesn’t evaporate.
