Water Conservation

The City of Ingleside encourages all residents, and commercial and industrial water users to be water-wise year-round to help make the most of our limited water resources. If everyone saves a little, we can save a lot.

Everyday Tips

Ways to conserve our precious water and make every drop count can include:

  • Turn off all water in the house, then check the flow indicator on your Water meter. If it is moving, you may have a water leak
  • Take shorter showers or take a bath in a partially filled tub
  • Turn the water faucet off while shaving and brushing your teeth
  • Do not let the faucet run while you clean vegetables or fruit
  • When washing dishes, do not leave the water running for rinsing
  • Use your automatic dishwasher for full loads, not partially empty
  • Keep a bottle or jug of drinking water in the refrigerator
  • Water your lawn only when it needs it
  • Water you plants, foundation and yard during the coolest part of the day
  • Do not water your porch, sidewalk or driveway
  • Do not run the water when you wash the car
  • Landscape your yard with plants that require very little or no water
  • Check for leaks in pipes, hoses, faucets and couplings
