Just check the ET - short for EvapoTranspiration – number on United Water’s website before watering. The number will tell you when and for how long you should water for optimal results with minimal water usage!
Check Today’s ET number!
United Water partners with local weather experts who help determine when your lawn needs watering. They measure water loss from soil through evaporation and moisture loss from plants through transpiration, and determine a daily ET number. That’s the optimal amount of water your lawn truly needs on any given day.
Your lawn stays green and healthy, and United Water says its customers save up to $200 a year by following the ET guidelines!
The Municipal Land Use Law provides requires the Borough have a conservation plan as part of its municipal master plan. As such, the GREC worked with the Borough to establish a Conservation Plan that focuses on preserving the Borough’s natural resources to allow for the continuation of natural processes and to ensure those resources are available for generations to come.

Environmental Resource Inventory
The Environmental Resources Inventory (ERI) presents an inventory and discussion (through text, tables and graphics) of the important natural resources and environmental features in the Borough of Glen Rock. This report is intended to provide a baseline snapshot of the Borough’s natural assets for measuring, evaluating, and prioritizing resource protection issues. The identification of significant environmental resources is a necessary first step toward ensuring their protection and preservation.
Sustainable Land Use Pledge
Smart growth is a difficult and long term proposition. As a significant, but beginning step, Sustainable Land Use Pledges are designed to be a public affirmation of a municipality’s intention to align its land-use decision-making and policies to support smart growth and sustainable development.
The Borough of Glen Rock affirmed its commitment to support smart growth and sustainable development when it signed Glen Rock’s Sustainable Land Use Pledge.
