Council Meeting Updates

Indoor conservation Tips:
Teach children to turn faucets off tightly after use. Play fun games while learning how to save water!

Outdoor Conservation Tips: September temperatures are cooling and things are beginning to revive from the summer heat. You can water less frequently to keep plants healthy and promote deep rooting as plants store energy for next year’s growth. Change your lawn mower to a 3-inch clipping height and try not to cut off more than one-third of the grass height when you mow. This will help create deeper healthy root systems that will be more tolerant of heat and will tolerate longer times between watering. * If you plan on planting, or even transplanting/dividing September is a great time to plant trees, shrubs and perennials.

Fun Facts:By the time a person feels thirsty, his or her body has lost over 1 percent of its total water amount. The weight a person loses directly after intense physical activity is weight from water, not fat.
