Did you know?
Watering one inch of water on a one acre yard consumes 26,000 gallons of water or more than a standard 16’x32′ swimming pool!

On the South Shore, our water resources are limited. We need water for drinking, firefighting, farming, food, and nature. That water comes from our ponds, streams, and groundwater. With increasing drought and stress on our water infrastructure, we are asking you to not use our precious resources to water your lawn. 

Grass can go dormant in dry periods and will green back up when there is rain and cooler temperatures. Please take our pledge to not water your lawn and pick up your FREE yard sign to help educate your neighbors.
