For many Americans, Memorial Weekend is the start of the “peak” season for water consumption. Water consumption in the average American home, on summer days, can spike causing significantly higher water usage bills, compared to their “off peak” season.
With the City of Fircrest’s 3-tier water rates many are asking “how can I afford to have a nice green lawn without the hefty water bill?” So, we have completed some information to help those who tend to “over water” their lawn and/or to help use water more wisely in other aspects/areas during the summer months to help promote water conservation and in turn save money on the water usage portion on your bill, click on the title above or the picture to the left to view more information, ideas and tips.
