WATER CONSERVATION

Do Your Part to Conserve

  • Water your yard thoroughly, but only as needed—usually no more than 1 inch, once a week.

  • Use drip irrigation for plants and gardens, and water early in the morning to minimize evaporation.

  • Collecting rainwater for landscape use is great for the plants and can save you water and money.

  • Install aerators to cut in half the amount of water used by each faucet. Fix faucet leaks, which can waste up to 3,000 gallons of water a year. Install water-efficient plumbing fixtures to reduce water consumption by 25% to 60% and save energy.

  • Check your toilet by using a leak-detection dye tablet. Leaks can waste up to 200 gallons of water a day.

  • Replace older toilets with water-efficient models and save up to 4,000 gallons of water a year.

  • Washing only full loads of laundry can save an average household more than 3,400 gallons of water each year.

  • Invest in an ENERGY STAR-qualified clothes washer, which typically uses 50% less water and 30% less energy per load.
