The annual water quality analysis report will be posted here and will be mailed to all members.
Lawn and Garden – Water slowly and thoroughly during cool, windless hours. Water as little as possible. Let grass grow taller in hot weather. Use mulch in the garden and around shrubs to save moisture. Plant native and other shrubs that don’t need a lot of water. Consider alternatives to big, thirsty lawns.
Repair Leaks – A single dripping faucet can waste hundreds, even thousands, of gallons per year. Most leaks are easy to detect and repair with some basic know-how and simple tools.
Water Loss in gal @ 60 P.S.I. Size of leaks and quanity of loss per month: 1/32″-6,000 gallons, 1/16″-25,000 gallons, 1/8″ 100,000 gallons, 1/4″-400,000 gallons of water loss in a month.
HOW TO CHECK YOUR SYSTEM FOR LEAKS
Locate the water meter – Typically it will be located in the front of your property near the road on either side of the property line. It is in a black box even with the ground. Look at meter to see if the dial is spining, if no water is running in the home meter should not move.
Read the meter twice – Read it first at night, after the day’s water use has ended–and again in the morning, before any water is used. Subtract the first reading from the second reading to tell how much water (if any) leaked out overnight.
