Don't Get Soaked: Conserve Water

Although our water rates remain among the lowest in Westchester County, they have increased for 2018 in order to support significant water infrastructure needs. Because lawn irrigation is a tremendous driver of peak summer usage, make sure your irrigation system does not have any leaks, and adopt the latest technology to make sure your sprinklers only turn-on when necessary. Also, consider converting turf grass to native plantings, using grass and leaf mulching, and implementing other cost-saving strategies to reduce water consumption.
