Ways to Reduce Water Usage

The FHA Environmental committee has passed along the following Marin Municipal Water District guidelines for limiting water usage during our drought:

  • While showering, collect warmup water and use it to water plants
  • Turn off the shower while soaping up
  • Flush selectively: if it’s yellow, let it mellow; if it’s brown, flush it down 
  • Limit watering to 3 days per week (any 3) 
  • Limit irrigation to after 7 p.m. & before 9 a.m.
  • Use a hose with a shutoff nozzle 
  • Aim for zero overspray & zero water runoff
  • Do not run irrigation while it’s raining or for 48 hours afterwards
