Water Conservation Tips for Spring

Posted on May 5th, 2015 by Jupiter Tequesta

We’re well into spring, and things are heating up here in Palm Beach County. As temperatures rise, being water smart is more important than ever. Adhere to these water conservation tips for spring:

1. Be responsible with your landscaping

“Naturalize it using locally appropriate plants that are hardy and don’t need a lot of water,” recommends TreeHugger.com. If you have to water your lawn, try to schedule it for nighttime in order to minimize evaporation.

2. Harvest rainwater

We get plenty of rain here in Florida! Make good use of it — place barrels on your downspouts, and use the water when watering your plants.

3. Have your car professionally washed

If washing your car is part of your spring cleaning routine, listen up. According to West Coast car washing company Kaady Car Washes, we use up to 140 gallons of water when we wash our car at home. Using a professional service can save as much as 95 gallons of water per wash!

4. Inspect outdoor spigots

“A slow drip from an outdoor spigot can add up to 20 gallons of water a day or 500 gallons a month,” reports Angie’s List. Look at your outdoor plumbing fixtures to make sure you’re not wasting water and money due to a slow leak!
