How can you help?

Here are a few ways you can help:

  • Don't blow or rake leaves and other yard waste into the street or gutter.
  • Don't over irrigate. Use drip irrigation, soaker hoses or microspray system and water early in the morning.
  • If you have a spray head sprinkler system, consider adjusting your watering method to a cycle and soak. Instead of watering for 15 minutes straight, break up the session into 5 minute intervals allowing water to soak in before the next application.
  • Keep irrigation systems well maintained and water only when needed to save money and prevent over-watering.
  • Recycle yard waste or start your own compost pile.
  • When mowing your lawn, mow so that grass clippings are blown back towards your lawn instead of into the street.
