Water Conservation Tips

  1. Inside the Home
  2. Outside the Home
  • Fill sink halfway to rinse produce instead of rinsing one at a time under running water.
  • Fix leaks on faucets, sinks, and toilets.
  • If you must use a dishwasher, always be sure to have a full load before running a cycle.
  • Install low-flow showerheads and toilets.
  • Keep a container of cold water in the refrigerator instead of waiting for water to cool from faucet.
  • Never use any more water than necessary to complete a task.
  • Take short showers instead of baths.
  • Turn off water while brushing teeth or shaving.
  • Wash dishes by hand by filling one side of the sink with soapy water for washing and the other side with clear water for rinsing instead of using a dishwasher.
  • When cleaning or emptying a fish tank, use the old water to irrigate houseplants or outdoor landscaping.
  • When washing clothes, only run the washer with a full load. If running a small load, be sure to select the correct water level.
