Save Water – Stop Irrigation Leaks

Check your irrigation system a few times a year for leaks.  This is one of the simplest things to do but can save so much water.

  • First, once a month, run your irrigation system as normal so that you can observe during daylight hours.  Look for broken heads, leaks and runoff.  Make adjustments as appropriate.
  • Second, a couple times a year, turn off all water usage inside the house for a few minutes.  Then locate your water meter (usually near the street under a cover that says ‘Water’) and look to see that none of the indicators are moving.  If something is moving, you may have a leak.
