Winter Averaging Starts Soon — Save Water Now

imageThis time of year, one of the best things you can do for your lawn and garden — and your wallet, too — is eliminate excess watering. That means turning off your irrigation system.

SAWS sewer charges are based on your average winter water use, as measured across three complete billing cycles from mid-November to mid-March. So watering your landscape less in those months can save you money throughout 2018.

Since plants and lawns are preparing for winter dormancy, they don’t take in as much water this time of year anyway. So get into the habit now — turn off your irrigation system and hand water instead.

Your billing cycle can be found on the front of your monthly statement just below the account number.

Save water now, save money later. Your wallet will thank you.
