Irrigating your garden and your property can increase water and wastewater usage, which is often a big problem.

To get more irrigation water flowing through your property, follow these steps: 1.

Choose a spot to water.

Irrigators can add a garden pond to your garden or lawn to draw more water to your property.

The pond is usually placed on your property or in your yard and will drain when the water level falls below the water table.

Water can then be drawn into your pond and treated to keep it free of algae, pesticides, and other pollutants.

The water will be used to fertilize your soil.

2.

Install irrigation valves and fittings.

Irwatering the garden and lawn can add to your water and sewer usage.

Irregular irrigation will cause problems with your garden, especially if you are using a lawn mower, which can cut down on the amount of water needed for watering.

A water meter can also be added to your irrigation system to monitor the amount and amount of irrigation water being used.

3.

Install filter and filter water lines.

Water from the sprinkler heads on your lawn and garden can be used as a filter for sewage and storm water runoff.

Water coming from a faucet or other source can be treated with an approved filtration system.

Water and sewer water treatment is an important part of a healthy lawn and property.

Irradiation can be expensive and often times out of reach for many homeowners.
