Thank you for conserving!
Please continue to be water wise and use only what you need.

Indoor Conservation

  • Repair leaky faucets, pipes and run-on toilets.
  • Don’t let the water run while shaving or brushing teeth.
  • Use a trickle rather than a full stream when washing hands.
  • Use less water in the tub or shower. Use shower head flow valve to cut back water while soaping.
  • Never use the toilet as an ashtray or wastebasket.
  • Run only full loads in the dishwasher and washing machine.
  • Keep a pitcher of drinking water in the fridge rather than running the tap to get cold water.
  • Use more brush and less water for washing dishes. Don’t let water run for rinsing.
  • Catch shower warm up water and use it to water plants.
  • Check toilets for leaks. Put a little food coloring in the toilet tank. If, without flushing, the color begins to appear in the bowl, you have a leak that should be repaired immediately.
  • Install inexpensive water-saving shower heads or flow restrictors. They’re easy to install and some have an easy to use flow control valve.
  • Replace older high water use toilets with the new ultra low flow models. Do some homework – some function better than others.
  • When in the market for a new washing machine, consider a water efficient front load model.

Outdoor Conservation

  • Water the landscape only, not streets, walks, or driveways.
  • Don’t let the water run while washing your car. Use a bucket & hose with automatic shut-off nozzle.
  • At a commercial car wash, use a hand-held wand and bubble brush, not the automatic drive-through.
  • Use broom or blower, not water, to clean drives and sidewalks.
  • Replace turf areas with natural, non-watered vegetation.
  • Manually turn off lawn sprinklers during rain or wind.
