Quick Check List on Outdoor Water Use

  • I have water-efficient landscaping.

  • I let my children play in the sprinklers only on my assigned days.
  • I water my lawn according to the recommendations in TMWA’s Lawn Care Guide.
  • I water during the cool parts of the day, never between noon and 6:00 p.m.
  • I don’t water when it’s windy or raining.
  • I don’t allow water to fill the gutter.
