While drought-like conditions aren't as wide-spread this summer as in the past, The City of Dallas Water Utilities' "Save Some Green and Go Blue" water conservation program offers these tips for staying water-wise this summer:
-Fill a bucket of water to wash your dog or car to avoid leaving the hose running
-Cover your pool or spa to reduce evaporation
-If you use an automatic sprinkler system, be sure it does not water sidewalks, driveways or streets.
-Fix leaky faucets.
-Take shorter showers, using low-flow shower heads.
-Upgrade your toilets (if installed prior to 1992) to a low-flow, water efficient model.
