Tips for Conserving Water

  • When purchasing new appliances or fixtures, consider ones that will save water and energy.

  • Wash only full loads in the dishwasher or clothes washer, instead of several small loads.

  • Soak pots and pans before washing.  When washing dishes by hand, fill one sink or basin with soapy water.

  • Check regularly for any leaks and fix them.  Most common bathroom leaks are found in faucets and in and around toilets.

  • Turn the tap water off while brushing your teeth, shaving, or washing your face.

  • Cut down on your shower time and/or only fill the bathtub 1/3 full when bathing.

  • Insulate your water pipes.  You’ll get hot water faster plus avoid wasting water while it heats up.

  • Collect rainwater in an old barrel or other large container that is outfitted with a spigot and a suitable cover, and use the water on your garden.

  • Don't over water your grass or landscaping.
