Your Role in Conservation

Be a WaterSaver

It's not just your toilet, showerheads, or faucets that waste water. It's you. Think about it. Have you ever let the water run to get a colder glass of water or flushed the toilet just to throw something away?

Be honest now. There's a lot of little things that together end up as this great big water wasting problem. Watch what you do and change your water wasting ways. To get started, here are some more things that might help.

For around $10 to $20, the average homeowner can install high-efficiency showerheads, replace aerators on the faucets, and repair dripping faucets and leaking toilets.

You can also install water-efficient toilets to replace your old water-wasting thrones. This could save 10,000 to more than 25,000 gallons per year for a family of four, and would pay for itself in less than a year! Even more could be saved if good outdoor water conservation is practiced for the lawn and garden.

Use these tips and others found on water conservation pages throughout the site.

WaterSaving Tips

  • Install a water-efficient shower head in each shower.
  • Repair leaks as soon as possible.
  • Install aerators (flow restrictors) on each faucet.
  • Use cut cut-off nozzles on each water hose.
  • Replace your old toilet with a new, water-efficient toilet.
  • Replace your old washing machine with a high efficiency model.
