Water Conservation

Living in the arid west obligates us, as westerners, to use our water wisely!

Water Service, to all Tree Haus residences, is being pumped through a 4-stage filtration system.  Whether for domestic consumption or landscape irrigation, please know that your water is filtered!  In 2016, the Metro District spent over $12,000 dollars for filters.  The Tree Haus water plant was pumping nearly 40,000 gallons each day through most of June 2017.  Early July consumption is now exceeding 50,000 gallons daily (7/06/2017).  Daily flow data shows that No Water Wednesdays is being honored as flow rates are in the 30,000+ gallon range for these days.  Thank you Tree Haus residents.  Please continue to be a good neighbor and do your part to conserve water. 

In an effort to reduce plant operating costs and to conserve water, the Metro District Board asks residents not to water between the hours of 10 am and 6 pm.  The evaporative power of the sun is strongest during the middle of the day.

Also, the following recommended guidelines are in place at all times:

  - Even numbered addresses should water Sunday, Tuesday and Friday.

  - Odd numbered addresses should water Monday, Thursday and Saturday.

  - No watering on Wednesdays

  - No washing driveways and parking areas.

  - No running outdoor water features.

  - No washing vehicles at residences.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation

Other tips for conserving water:

  • Avoid watering in windy conditions.
  • Adjust sprinklers to avoid watering hard surfaces and set timers to avoid over-watering.
  • Water in short intervals to allow better infiltration through our clay soils.
  • Cut your lawn no shorter than 3 inches to reduce soil moisture loss and to promote deeper roots.
  • Avoid planting trees and shrubs or sodding new lawns during our drier, hotter months.
  • Plant native grasses and shrubs or drought-tolerant species around your lawn and gardens.
