Action 2

  • A lot of water can be wasted through evaporation if you water gardens during the hot parts of the day.

Note: On some occasions it may be necessary for organisations like the Alice Springs Town Council to water parks and ovals during the day, such as when watering in fertiliser, testing irrigation or to avoid vandalism at night.
