Saving water in the yard
Let's be honest: We live in the Sonoran Desert. So while SRP and others have planned for water needs well into the future, we still need to protect this precious resource.
That includes all the ways you use water outside. See below for ideas.
Aerate your lawn
We tend to think of the bathroom and laundry rooms as the places where most of our water use takes place, but in Greater Phoenix, the biggest water savings can result from making changes to the way you use water outdoors.
Aerating your lawn gets water to where its needed most – your grass's roots – and it prevents runoff into the road and neighbors' properties.
See where your water comes from
The water delivered to your home travels more than 150 miles through mountain and desert terrain before it emerges from your tap.
