HOMEOWNER TIPS

1 Jul 2017 12:00 AM | Gail Jodoin (Administrator)

Governor Chris Christie has proclaimed July to be Smart Irrigation Month in New Jersey to draw attention to the importance of using water efficiently. July is traditionally the month of peak demand for watering lawns, gardens and landscapes in North America. This initiative is meant to increase public awareness about simple practices and innovative technologies homeowners, businesses and property managers can use to:

Save money on utility bills.

Minimize or defer investments in infrastructure to store and carry water, typically paid for by property taxes or municipal bonds.

Protect their community's water supply for generations to come.

Homeowners typically overwater lawns and landscapes by up to 30 percent. By selecting and planting carefully, watering wisely, and maintaining and upgrading automated irrigation systems, consumers can save money, save water and see better results.
