Water Conservation

Conservation Tips

  • Shorten your showers. Even a one or two-minute reduction can save up to 700 gallons per month.
  • Use a broom instead of a hose to clean driveways and sidewalks. Saves 150 gallons or more each time. At once a week, that is more than 600 gallons a month.
  • Don't use your toilet as an ashtray or wastebasket. Saves 400 to 600 gallons per month.
  • Capture tap water. While you wait for hot water to come down the pipes, catch the flow in a watering can to use later on house plants or your garden. Saves 200 to 300 gallons per month.
  • Don't water the sidewalks, driveway or gutter. Adjust your sprinkler so that water lands on your lawn or garden where it belongs - and only there. Saves 500 gallons per month.
