Water Conservation Tips

The following 10 methods will save you the most on your water consumption and spending:
  1. Only water your lawn when it is needed - a simple test to check if it needs water is to step on the grass, if it springs back up when you lift your foot, it doesn't need water.
  2. Fix leaky faucets and plumbing joints.
  3. Don't run the hose when washing your car - use a bucket of water with a quick hose rinse at the very end.
  4. Install water saving or flow restricting shower heads.
  5. Run only full loads in the dishwasher and washing machine.
  6. Shorten your showers.
  7. Use a broom instead of a hose to clean off driveways and walkways.
  8. Don't use your toilet as a wastebasket or an ashtray.
  9. Capture tap water - while waiting for hot water to come from the tap, catch the cold water flow in a watering can that can be used for the lawn or garden.
  10. Don't water the sidewalks, driveways, or gutters - adjust your sprinklers so that water only lands on the lawn.
