Drought Preparedness

Drought

Conserve water

  • Take shorter showers.
  • Turn off the water while brushing your teeth or shaving.
  • Run the washer less frequently and only when you have a full load.
  • Water your lawn less frequently and do so when the temperature is cooler in the early morning or late evening.
  • When you run the tap to heat or cool water, keep a pitcher to store the water and use it to water plants.
  • Avoid washing your car.

Practice fire prevention

  • Don't set off fireworks when conditions are dry.
  • Deposit cigarette butts in the proper receptacle to avoid starting a fire.
  • Pour water over camp fires and backyard fire pits to ensure they are completely out before leaving them unattended.

Follow directions from local officials

  • If there are restrictions on water usage, be sure to heed them!
