Don’t pay for water you don’t need! Figure out how much your sprinkler system uses with a helpful worksheet from the City of Allen Water Conservation.

The digital download breaks down the average water use of various irrigation systems, including spray heads, rotor heads and drip irrigation. Residents can fill in the blanks to help estimate the number of gallons their sprinkler system uses during each minute of run time.

Allen typically gets 38” of rainfall each year. Even during the growing season, lawns only require ½” per week. The worksheet reminds residents to only water when it is extremely hot or dry to reduce water waste.
