During the current wildfire season, the NRRM would like to remind the community to water in moderation to reduce the risk of water shortages. Here are a few helpful tips to conserve water and make every drop count.



  • Water your lawn between 7am and 9am. Watering during the heat of day causes water to evaporate faster than grass can absorb it.
  • Make sure you’re sprinkling your lawn opposed to your driveway, sidewalk or road.
  • Leave your grass longer than you normally would. Longer grass establishes deeper roots.
  • Mulch your grass by leaving clippings on the lawn. This helps slow evaporation so that your lawn retains moisture.



  • Check for leaks and fix them immediately. Don’t ignore a dripping tap or leaking appliance.
  • Turn off the faucet when brushing your teeth or shaving.
  • Take short showers and install a low-flow shower head.
  • Only operate washing machines and dishwashers when they are fully loaded.
