How to Save Water
Turn taps off tightly so they do not drip. A dripping faucet dripping once every second can increase your water will by $35 per year.
If your toilet run constant fix it as soon as possible. A running toilet can double you bill in a billing cycle
When hand-washing dishes, never run water continuously. Wash dishes in a partially filled sink and then rinse them using the spray attachment on your tap.
If you have an electric dishwasher, use it only to wash full loads, and use the shortest cycle possible. Many dishwashers have a conserver/water-miser cycle.
You can reduce water usage by 40% to 50% by installing low-flush toilets.
40% of water usage in a home is used outside – install cisterns and rain barrels
Use all natural cleaning products that will not harm the environment.
Water during the cool part of the day, in the morning or evening. Do not water on windy days.
Do not over-water in anticipation of a shortage. Soil cannot store extra water.
Use shut-off timers or on-off timers, if possible. Do not turn on sprinklers and leave for the day.
Install pervious pavers in your driveways and walkways to keep rain water from being collected in the storm sewer.
