Water Conservation Tip
Use a broom, not a hose, to clean the driveway.
Keep an eye on your water budget
Water use in the summer typically rises as homeowners fend off warmer temperatures by watering their lawn, garden and flowerbeds. Your bi-monthly water budget is intended to provide enough water to maintain healthy landscape while encouraging conservation.
 
With warm and dry conditions, Centennial Water recommends you carefully watch your water usage. Increased use, especially exceeding your water budget, will increase your water bill.
 
Your water budget was identified based on your individual lot size and varies by billing period during the irrigation season. You can see water budget information on your water bill.

How much should you be running your sprinkler system?
The image below explains how much you should be watering during the month of June. There are run times based on the type of irrigation system you have. The numbers reflect the number of minutes to water per zone, three days a week.

Recommended watering times for upcoming months will be posted on Centennial Water's Facebook page or online at centennialwater.org.
Community electronics recycling
Do you have old electronics taking up space in your basement or garage? Douglas County is co-sponsoring free community electronics recycling events this summer. Sites will be minimally staffed due to COVID-19 and workers will adhere to social distancing requirements.

There is no limit on the number of household electronics, including computers and all types of televisions. The only stipulations are that all electronics must plug into a wall.

  • July 15, 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. at Douglas County Fairgrounds
  • August 8, 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. at EchoPark Stadium

Household chemical recycling
If you're like most these days, the stay at home orders led you to tackling some home improvement projects and now you've got some household chemicals you need to discard. Tri-County Health Department has an A to Z Recycling Guide on their website. It's a great resource where you can find out how to safely dispose of items from batteries to fertilizer.

Got paint?
If you have paint you need to dispose of, visit paintcare.org and type in your location to pull up local paint retailers that will accept old paint for recycling.

Let's keep those household chemicals out of our water supply and please recycle them responsibly.
