North Texas Municipal Water District launches website www.WaterMyYard.org to compute water needs for your landscape by using actual weather data
The North Texas Municipal Water District, in partnership with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service (AgriLife), is offering a new tool that computes landscape water needs based on local weather conditions. NTMWD is launching this water efficiency tool in recognition of Drinking Water Week.
The website, www.WaterMyYard.org has been developed to assist in determining an adequate amount of supplemental water that is needed to maintain a healthy landscape. It only takes a few short steps to begin receiving a weekly email to know how much water your landscape actually requires based on local weather conditions. Read the press release.
