Water Conservation

Tips on Conserving Water

  • Short showers save water
  • Take half baths
  • Wash clothes wisely and use full loads
  • Use hot water efficiently
  • Brush teeth (turn faucet on briefly to rinse)
  • Flush toilets only when necessary
  • Don't run water continuously while shaving

Check toilets for leaks by adding a few drops of food coloring to the water in the tank. If the bowl water becomes colored without flushing, there's a leak that needs attention. About 20% of toilets have hidden leaks.
