What can I do to lower my bill?

When turning your irrigation system on in the spring – check the run schedule. Make sure the run schedule matches the City’s odd/even Sprinkling Policy. If an irrigation company turns on your system, double check that the run schedule is set properly. Most run schedules are set for very early morning and may be running when you don’t want/need watering to take place. Most modern irrigation systems can be programmed with a rain sensor.

Keep in mind, an odd/even watering schedule is a helpful way to organize water use in the City, but in rainy weeks your lawn will likely not require watering.
