Water Usage & Conservation Tips
"Water conservation - using water efficiently and avoiding waste - is essential to ensure that we have adequate water today and into the future. Water is a finite resource and the supplies on Earth today are no more than what was here at the beginning of the planet. It is up to all of us to use the water we have wisely, and it is as simple as each of us making small changes. Make conserving water a daily part of your life. And remember when you save water, you save energy and money!" (Source - WA Department of Ecology)
Excessive water use can result in high water bills, especially during summer months when water rates increase. To avoid high water bills, you can reduce and minimize your water use.
The City of Bonney Lake and Washington State Department of Ecology offer the following tips to conserve and reduce water use:
Water Conservation Advisories
During peak demand periods each day in July and August, Bonney Lake’s water system is heavily used. While our water supply capacity is adequate to meet ours and our neighbor’s needs, the pressure throughout our water system fluctuates frequently during peak demand periods. In order to prevent water pressure from getting too low in parts of our water system, City staff will occasionally place “Conserve Water” signs at entrances to our water service area. When you see the signs set out, we ask all our water customers to stop watering lawns, washing cars, and other outdoor activities. During periods when a Water Conservation Advisory is in effect, water customers using irrigation meters are asked to avoid watering grassy areas. We will only post these signs when absolutely necessary.
