Park City has a semi-arid climate and the amount of water supply available varies from year to year. Some year's snowfall and rainfall are plentiful and other year's precipitation is scarce. By using water wisely we protect ourselves from water shortages in drier years. Conservation can do more than save gallons of water.
Here are some simple water conservation tips:
Conserve in the Kitchen
Let your pots and pans soak instead of letting the water run while you clean them.
Be a Good Citizen
Join a local group committed to natural resources protection.
Save Water Outdoors
Apply as little fertilizer to your lawn as possible. Applying fertilizer increases water consumption and actually creates more mowing for you! Use iron-based fertilizers to simply "green-up" your lawn instead.
Avoid Brown Spots
Instead of washing your car in the street or driveway, park it on the lawn where it won't go to waste.
Conserve in Your Landscape
Try to add more days between watering. Allowing your lawn to dry out between watering creates deeper roots and allows you to water deeper and less often.
Conserve with Your Plants
Create a compost pile and use it in your yard to add needed nutrients and organic matter to the soil.
Save Water Indoors
Wash only full loads in your washing machine, or adjust the water level to reflect the size of the load.
Conserve in the Bathroom
Install ultra-low-flush toilets or place a plastic bottle filled with water or sand in your toilet tank to reduce the amount of water used in each flush.
