Adjust Your Sprinkler Timer this Season

Did you remember to turn back your clocks one hour for Daylight Savings Time on November 3? What about turning back your sprinkler timer?

As the fall weather brings shorter days and cooler temperatures, we want to remind our customers that our outdoor landscapes don’t need as much water this season as they do in the spring. Turning back your sprinkler timer by just one minute can help save up to 80 gallons of water a week! If you are unsure how to set up or control your sprinkler timer, you can give our Water Efficiency department a call to walk you through these steps. Check out our additional resources to help you manage your outdoor water use.

Don’t Send Fats, Oils, or Grease Down the Drain

A little grease down the drain doesn’t hurt, right? Wrong! While fats, oils and grease go down the drain as liquids, they solidify over time and can clog pipes and harm our environment. With the holiday season around the corner, we want you to enjoy your family gatherings in an environmentally responsible way. Here are some tips to keep in mind:
DON’T pour household grease into sinks, garbage disposals or other drains. Consider allowing the grease to cool in a container before throwing it in the trash.
DON’T flush grease, diapers, sanitary napkins, newspapers, soiled rags, and/or paper towels down toilets. Place these items in the trash can instead.
DON’T pour oil or grease into a storm drain. Help us keep our local creeks and beaches clean.
Thank you for doing your part to help us keep our pipelines free from fats, oils, grease, and other items that shouldn’t be placed down the drain!
