Conservation of water is everyone’s responsibility. In addition to the cost savings, it helps the environment.
There are simple ways that you can converse water:
~Repair leaky faucets and toilets
~Install low-flow or dual flush toilets
~Use a low-flow showerhead; limit shower times. Showers are more water-efficient than bathtubs.
~When doing your laundry, make sure to adjust the settings on your machine to the proper load size.
~Be sure you have a full load when you run your dishwasher.
~Wash the car only when necessary.
~Use a solar cover on pools to minimize evaporation.
~Use a rain barrel to capture water for your outdoor watering.
~Use varieties of draught tolerant plants to reduce the need for watering.
