The Town of Indian Head

Please do you part to help conserve water! All efforts help to ensure an ample supply of water is readily available to emergency services and to residents for personal use.

Water Conservation Tips:

  • Limit laundry cycles to full loads.
  • Adjust your sprinklers so you’re only watering your lawn and garden, not the road and sidewalk.
  • Water lawns and gardens early in the morning or later in the evening when temperatures are cooler and evaporation is minimized.
  • Adjust automatic sprinkler systems to match the odd/ even schedule for your residence. Inspect systems for leaks.
  • Use a nozzle on the end of hoses to save roughly 5-7 gallons each minute your hose is on.
  • Adjust your lawnmower to a higher setting. The taller lawn provides shade to the roots and promotes soil moisture retention.
