Save Water – More Effective Watering

Posted on May 23, 2018
With the summer weather, excessive lawn watering puts a strain on the Township of Schreiber’s water production capabilities at the water treatment plant.
 
At this time, we are asking for your cooperation in using alternate day lawn watering, where even numbered houses water on even numbered days and odd numbered houses water on odd numbered days.
 
Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated.
Thank You – Township of Schreiber
 
Tips for effective lawn watering:
 
• Do your lawn watering early in the morning or late in the evening. Watering in the afternoon will only see most of your water evaporate in the hot sun.
 
• Water deeply and infrequently. Deep watering promotes a deep root system, while over-watering (daily) promotes shallow root growth, making your lawn less hardy.
 
• Water an area of your lawn for 15-20 minutes before moving your sprinkler to a new area.
