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 ALL of your water is filtered!  In 2016, the Metro District spent over $12,000 dollars for filters.  The Tree Haus water plant has pumped an average of 76,775 gallons over the course of July 2019.  Over 90,000 gallons were pumped on 8 days during July and on July 16th over 100,000 gallons were pumped.  No Water Wednesdays has not been wholly respected by some homes in Tree Haus, as flow rates on some Wednesdays show little decrease in pump flow.  Come on neighbors and renters PLEASE do your part to conserve water, and DO NOT irrigate on Wednesdays. 

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 and wind is strongest during the middle of any hot and breezy day.

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.
