Water conservation is crucial to ensuring future water supply availability, but it is also helps prevent overspending on water bills. As the temperature heats up and lawns 'green' up, the tendency is to increase irrigation. This practice leads to much higher water bills due to the high volume of water used for irrigation.
The City of Irving places an emphasis on 'Smart Irrigation,' which means making wise choices about water use. That includes conducting maintenance on the irrigation system before using it after a long rest, and checking the system monthly thereafter. In addition, monitor water usage, make sure sprinklers function properly and carefully consider when and how much water should be used. Because irrigation is the highest use of domestic water, it is good to be intentional about conserving water:
