Water Conservation

In the Bathroom:


1. Take a five minute shower instead of a bath.
    Amount saved: 15 gallons per shower
2. Don't use toilets as a wastebasket, flush only when you need to.
   Amount saved: 12 or more gallons per day
3. When brushing teeth, use a glassful of water instead of running the tap.
    Amount saved: 3 or more gallons per brushing.
4. When taking a bath, don't run the water without closing the drain first. The warm water that comes after running the tap for a while will take care of that first cold burst of water.
 
In the Kitchen:


1. When washing dishes by hand, fill up the sink with soap and water instead of running the water the whole time. Amount saved: 25 gallons per load
2. Keep a pitcher of water in the refrigerator when you want a drink instead of running the tap until the water cools. Amount saved: 2 gallons per drink
3. Thaw frozen foods in the refrigerator, not under running tap water. Amount saved: 5 or more gallons per meal
4. Start a compost pile as an alternative to using a kitchen sink garbage disposal.

Outside around your home:


1. Water your lawn during the early morning hours when there are low temperatures and low winds. This reduces the amount of water you lose from evaporation.
2. Position your sprinklers to water only the lawn, not the sidewalk or street.
3. Don't waste water hosing down your driveway or sidewalk.
    Amount saved: 25 gallons every five minutes not using hose
4. Drive your car over your lawn when washing to save on watering it, or use a commercial car wash that recycles water.
5. Don't over water your lawn during the summer, as a general rule it only needs to be watered every 5-7 days during this time.
