When you start saving water, you start saving money. Follow these steps around the home and watch your water bill -- and often your energy bill -- drop.
In the kitchen: If you wash your dishes in the sink, fill the basin with wash water, wash dishes in it, put dishes aside, and rinse them all together at the end.
In the bathroom: Install WaterSense labeled toilets throughout your home. Or, exchange your old showerhead for a new, high-efficient one, and save dozens of gallons of water per shower.
In the laundry room: Make sure to wash only full loads in the washer. Eliminate one load a week and save 2,130 gallons of water annually.
Water Restrictions: Watering outdoors is not allowed from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.
Landscape Irrigation Evaluations: Individual homeowners or condominium associations, can have your landscape evaluated in order to improve your property's water efficiency.
Rain Barrels: Attend a rain barrel workshop to discover a clever way to store rainwater that can be used to water your yard or plants.
