JULY IS SMART IRRIGATION MONTH:
USE WATER WISELY

 

 

 

As California faces the driest three-year sequence on record, it is important for us to recognize July as Smart Irrigation Month. Historically, there has been an increase in outdoor water use during the month of July. We all need to do our part to keep using water wisely.

Did you know as much as 50% of the water used outdoors is wasted from inefficient watering methods and systems? Moulton Niguel has a variety of programs and resources available to help customers take action to use water efficiently. Here are 4 effective ways you can reduce your outdoor watering and only use what you need.

 

 

ADJUST YOUR WATERING TIMES

Water no more than 3 times a week, between 8 p.m. and 8 a.m., for no more than 8 minutes per station. Try 2 cycles at 4 minutes each for best results.

UPGRADE TO A SMART WEATHER BASED IRRIGATION CONTROLLER

Smart Controllers use information about your plants, soil, and weather conditions to apply the right amount of water year-round. Rebates of up to $330 per controller are available. Visit mnwd.com/rebates for more information.

USE WATER-EFFICIENT SPRINKLERS AND NOZZLES

These are designed to produce larger drops of water or streams that resist wind, prevent evaporation and reduce overwatering. Rebates of up to $6 per nozzle are available. Visit mnwd.com/rebates for more information.

CONSERVATION TIP FROM YOUR NEIGHBOR!

 

 

 

I am a long time Moulton Niguel customer. I have a single family house, nice garden and yard. I hand water my lawn and garden twice per week at 7 a.m. on Tuesday and Friday. This way there is no over-watering, water runoff on the curb or sidewalk and lower expenses. You only need a hose and nozzle. You also get more exercise and that is good!

 

 

 

We LOVE hearing from our customers! Share YOUR water efficiency efforts with us! Email outreach@mnwd.com if you would like to be featured in our future marketing materials.
