• Ways to Conserve Water

    You can conserve gallons of water every day by making simple changes in the way you live. Look through these suggestions and implement some into your daily life:  

    • Shut the water off between rinsing dishes or brushing your teeth. Just by shutting off the water when you brush your teeth, you alone can save eight gallons of water.  
    • Take showers since they use less water than baths, but try to keep them to five minutes or less in length. A five-minute shower takes 10 to 25 gallons of water. 
    • Use flow-restricting devices on shower heads.
    • Fix leaky faucets immediately. A dripping faucet can waste up to 2,000 gallons of water a year.
    • Run only full loads of clothes in the washer.
    • Place a plastic bottle or brick in the water tank of the toilet so that it will use less water for each flushing.
    • Turn the water on only when you are actually using it.
    • Avoid using water for watering lawns or washing cars during times of water shortage.
    • 100 bicycles can be produced for the energy and resources it takes to build one medium-size automobile. Commute by bike!

    If everyone does their part and contributes to water conservation the benefits will be enormous.
