Summer is here and Arlington Water Utilities wants to help residents determine how much water their lawns need. The EPA estimates that up to 50 percent of outdoor water usage during the summer is wasted due to overwatering. Following water-efficient practices can save residents money on their water and sewer bills and help aid water conservation efforts.

The Water Department has teamed up with the Tarrant Regional Water District and the Arlington Public Library to make the following FREE online classes available. Register at the links below to be sent information on how to attend or how to access a recording if you’re unable to attend the live online event.
