Water Conservation Tips

Tips for the Whole Family

  • When running water to get it hot, collect that water for other uses.
  • Don’t run water to get it cold for drinking, keep a pitcher of water in the fridge for drinking.
  • Most water wasted in home is used to flush toilets; don’t flush unnecessarily.
  • Test to see if you have a leaky stool by adding a few drops of food color to the tank. If color appears in the bowl, it is leaking; have it repaired.
  • Install flow-restricting devices on shower heads. Take showers instead of baths; you could save 10-20 gallons of water.
  • Wash only full loads in washer and dishwasher. Use the water miser cycle on your dishwasher.
  • Don’t use running water to thaw meat or frozen vegetables. Thaw overnight in fridge.
  • If you have water conservation questions, call your local water provider.
  • Make water conservation a way of life!!
