Inefficient landscape irrigation wastes billions of gallons of water every year. This can be due to overwatering, underwatering, watering at the wrong time of day, leaks in irrigation systems, or sprinklers that spray sidewalks, streets, or driveways.

Curious About Your Drinking Water Quality?

Have you ever wondered about the quality and safety of your drinking water? To help Texans stay informed, the TCEQ requires all public water systems to produce an annual Consumer Confidence Report (CCR)—an easy-to-read document that lays out a wide variety of information relevant to drinking water quality. The 2017 reports are available as of July 1, 2018, so take a moment to find and read your CCR.
