Water is centrally metered. All residents are strongly urged to conserve water at all times. The extensive grounds that make Tulip Gardens attractive require a great deal of water during the summer.
Rates for water use have increased since the first operating budget was projected in 1987. Conservation can be accomplished with the following suggestions:
- Water saving devices on showerheads.
- Time limited showers rather that full tub baths.
- A basin of water rather than running water when shaving.
Washing a car with a hose is not permitted. Residents who want to clean off a car must limit themselves to using a pail of water. Non-residents are not allowed to use Tulip Garden’s property to wash their cars.
