Description:

This outreach brochure provides simple steps for homeowners to conserve on outdoor water use. Lawn watering and other outdoor water uses can account for 30 percent of Illinois home water usage throughout the summer, but only half of that water penetrates the soil, with the rest lost due to inefficient watering practices. Reducing outdoor water waste in Illinois saves money and protects our limited water resources, especially during times of drought. We can all take a few simple steps to use water more efficiently.
