Conservation is everyone's responsibility, from community residents, organizations, and schools to small businesses, visitors, and corporations. Below are some tips on how businesses can conserve water:
Educate employees and visitors about conserving water. Place signs encouraging conservation in public and employee areas.
Serve water only upon request at restaurants.
Report leaks in faucets, toilets, and all other water fixtures so they may be repaired promptly.
When landscaping, plant or request the planting of native plants and arrange them in sections according to water and light needed. This minimizes water use and maintenance.
Make sure sprinklers are set to irrigate only in the early morning and/or evening when evaporation is minimal.
Check sprinklers to be sure that water is not being wasted on sidewalks, parking lots, or streets. Water should only be hitting lawns and plants.
