Yard Water Conservation Tip from Julie

We made rain barrels out of resources we had at home. After the city introduced the new garbage bins ours have been sitting empty. We bought a spout and a stand with scrap wood and cans up with this system to catch our rain water. The lid has holes with a screen to keep just the water to enter and it over flows to our other pail and then out a hose to our yard when they’re both full. It’s amazing how quickly rain water adds up when you collect it.

Home Water Conservation Tip from Teresa

We are saving shower water to water our garden, trees and shrubs, we are also reusing dishes throughout the day when they aren’t to dirty to be reused to reduce the amount we run our dishwasher. We also installed an eaves trough on our shed to collect rain water from.
