Water outside--how to save it!
Here are some actions outside that can impact water conservation and water quality.
1. Pool owners can use a cover to reduce water loss through evaporation. A pool
cover can also save energy and reduce the need for chemicals.
2. Sweep outdoor surfaces with a broom instead of using a hose.
3. Wash vehicles at a carwash that recycles its water. If washing at home, make
sure the hose has a shutoff valve.
4. Pick up after your pet’s waste. This is an important way to protect water quality
in the watershed.
