Fix a Leak

This week is Fix a Leak Week and now is a great time to check on your irrigation system, look for leaks, and do repairs before the summer heat arrives. Glendale Water Services staff can talk and show quick tips to trouble shoot your irrigation system.

  • Proper irrigation can help
  • broken sprinkler head can lose up to 12 gallons per minute
  • ½ inch diameter garden hose delivers 5 to 8 gallons of water per minute; over 300 gallons per hour.
  • slow dripping leaky outdoor valve or indoor water fixture can waste over 350 gallons per month.

Wildflowers

  • Flowers are a great way to bring not just color but wildlife to your garden
  • Best time of year to plant, best flowers to plant, how to care for them in your garden.
