New Year’s Resolution.

Resolution: "The state or quality of being resolute; firm determination. Resolving to do something…"

“For many, the beginning of a new year brings the commitment, promise and plan to change one's lifestyle." Many resolutions are made but difficult to carry out Statistics show that somewhere in the vicinity of 97% of New Year's resolutions won't be kept.

"Making a New Year's resolution to save water and limit water use is good for the environment and the pocketbook.” Not to mention, it’s a lot easier to turn off the faucet while brushing your teeth than losing ten pounds.

We have compiled a small list of water saving tips to get your started on your new year and new you. GOOD LUCK

•Water no more than two days a week during the winter months.

•Water before 9 a.m. and after 5 p.m. to prevent water evaporation.

•Limit watering to 15 minutes outdoors each day per station. Use a weather based controller to prevent overwatering during wet weather.

•Use a hose nozzle with a shut off valve while washing your vehicles.

•Turn off decorative water features unless they re-circulate water.

•Repair your leaks immediately. This could save you hundreds of gallons of wasted water a month.

•Avoid water waste by doing your best to limit water use while doing yard work. Don't allow water to runoff onto sidewalks, driveways or gutters. Use a broom instead of a hose to wash down paved surfaces.

•Install water-saving shower heads, hose nozzles and faucet aerators.
