The City of Santa Barbara has come up with some great ways to save water. Even if you don’t live in the Santa Barbara area, these tips still apply and can help you or your customers save water and money. Be sure to check out the short video at the end of the paragraph below.
“About half of the water used in Santa Barbara County goes to outdoor irrigation and this area has the biggest potential for water savings. For comparison, an average 15 minute shower uses 30 gallons total, while watering an average lawn for 15 minutes uses 700 gallons! During this dry winter, please reduce your outside water use by making sure sprinkler systems are not overwatering or spraying onto the driveway or street. Then turn down your watering using the watering percent adjust at www.WaterWiseSB.org. You can watch a video about how to use the watering percent adjust here.“
