July is Smart Irrigation Month. Founded in 2005 by the Irrigation Association®, Smart Irrigation Month highlights the benefits of efficient irrigation and the importance of water-use efficiency throughout the month of July, which is historically known as the month of peak demand for outdoor water-use.
Outdoor water use can account for 60 percent or more of total household water use. In recognition of Smart Irrigation Month, The City of Chino, in collaboration with the Inland Empire Utilities Agency will be offering free hose nozzles to residents (while supplies last). Using an automatic shut-off hose nozzle allows you to easily control the flow of water and turn the hose on and off as needed to reduce your water use by approximately five to seven gallons per minute. Most hose nozzles also allow you to adjust the water pressure and directionality so you can use less water while gaining functionality.
Free hose nozzle distribution locations:
• Chino City Hall- 13200 Central Avenue, Chino 91710 from 7:30 AM-4:30 PM Monday-Friday
• Inland Empire Utilities Agency- 6075 Kimball Avenue, Chino 91708 from 8 AM-5 PM Monday-Thursday
