Water from a public water supply (such as CFPUA, the City, County etc) shouldn't be used for watering and irrigation anyways. Using public water for that purpose should be illegal. The water is for human consumption, not yards. Cook, cleaning and washing clothes is human consumption, watering your lawn to keep your 10,000.00 sod invesment bright green all year long is not. Not to mention, having your irrigation system running even though it has been raining all day.
When I want to water my grass, I use the well that was drilled on my property for my primary source of all water. I have County water for the house and the well for everything else.
If the county up here doesn't drop their rates and get better water, I'll be switching back next year..
