Learn to Conserve

Water Wiser Workshops

Did you realize you could be wasting between 20 and 75 percent of your sprinkler water? Discover if you are using the right sprinkler for the job, how to fix common irrigation problems, and simple steps to understand your landscape-watering needs.

There is no charge to attend these workshops; however, registration is required. If you are unable to attend the workshop, please cancel your registration to allow another customer on the wait list to attend.

Completion of this free workshop earns you a “Water Wiser” designation and exempts you from the every-third-day watering schedule. Remember that all water customers must still adhere to the overnight watering hours requirement. Keep in mind that the designation can be revoked if drought restrictions occur or abuse of water use is determined.

With new technology and best practices being developed, residents must attend a Water Wiser workshop every five years to maintain the Water Wiser designation.

With new technology and best practices being developed, as well as updates to Town requirements, renewal for the Water Wiser designation is required every 5 years. The renewal workshop is only available to Water Wiser participants who attended a workshop within the past 5 years. For first time attendees, or if your Water Wiser designation has expired, please register for a standard Water Wiser workshop. If you are unsure about your eligibility, please contact us: email.
