With booming populations, prolonged droughts and increased demand on a limited supply of water, it is more important than ever for each of us to use water wisely and efficiently to make sure our supplies last. An average family uses 60-80 gallons of household water per person per day.
Luckily, there are many ways each of us can conserve and use water wisely every day. For a sample of smart, simple choices you can make whenever and wherever you use water — outdoors or indoors, visit North Texas WaterIQ's website. While there be sure to tour the interactive High Water IQ Home for more water-saving tips.
Not sure how much water your yard needs?
A HEALTHY LANDSCAPE ACTUALLY REQUIRES LESS WATER THAN YOU MAY THINK. The "Water My Yard" program, developed by NTMWD’s WaterIQ program in partnership with the Irrigation Technology Program of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension has been established as a tool to assist you in determining an adequate amount of supplemental water that is needed to maintain healthy grass. Learn more by visiting www.watermyyard.org and it only takes a few short steps to begin receiving a weekly email to know how much water your landscape actually requires based on local weather conditions - effective rainfall, solar radiation, relative humidity and wind.
