Did you know that the average Canadian uses 10,000 litres of water each month? The Town of Bruderheim encourages residents to conserve water to lighten our impact on our watershed. One way you could do this is by mulching your lawn - this helps it to grow thicker, with fewer weeds and less watering required. Lawn maintenance consumes a large amount of our water supply every summer. Let's work together to improve water conservation in our community!
