Avoid Water Waste This Summer

Residents are watering more frequently in this extremely hot weather, and the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority (ABCWUA) encourages efficient irrigation techniques to help avoid water waste.

  • Inspect your irrigation system frequently and address maintenance issues right away
  • Set your irrigation timer to change with the seasons
  • Run your irrigation system in short cycles, allowing water to penetrate the soil between cycles to prevent surface run-off
  • Install check valves at low points in the system to prevent water from draining out between cycles
  • Use drip irrigation instead of spray heads outside of lawn areas
  • Do not mix sprinkler system components from different manufacturers
