Water Conservation:

For Everyone

  • Turn the water off while you are actually brushing your teeth. Use short bursts of water for cleaning your brush. (This saves about 80% of the water normally used.)

  • Never run water continuously when washing dishes. Use a partially filled sink and then rinse them using the spray attachment on your tap.

  • Only wash full loads of clothes in your washing machine and use the shortest cycle possible.

  • Water lawns every three to five days instead of a short period every day. Be sure to water in the early morning or late at night, during the coolest part of the day. Do not water on windy days and decrease watering during cooler times of the year.

  • Water conservation and water pollution are interrelated - only use cleaning products that will not harm the environment when they are washed away after use.
