Having a beautiful lawn and garden doesn’t mean you need to use a lot of water.

But homes with automatic sprinkler irrigation systems often use large volumes of water — about 40% more than homes without the systems. All that water can even harmful to healthy lawns and gardens.

That’s why Aquarion worked with state and local officials to develop a twice-weekly, mandatory irrigation schedule in six towns where outdoor water usage is especially high. Customers in those towns are now saving millions of gallons of water each year. Please help your community maintain its water-efficiency by following the mandatory schedule for your in-ground and above ground sprinkler irrigation. You may use drip irrigation, soaker hoses and hand-held watering at any time.
