(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Wondering what you can do to conserve water this summer?
Ask the folks at Salt Lake City's Hogle Zoo. They've figured out how to use nearly 50 percent less water.
The zoo is offering to share its conservation strategies with the public -- as Utah enters a fifth summer of drought and many cities are enacting mandatory conservation rules.
Some of the zoo's new conservation measures include sweeping sidewalks -- instead of hosing them off; putting timers on their sprinkler system; and installing more efficient fixtures.
The zoo is holding a "water conservation day" on Saturday.
