Water Saving Tips! 

  • Water your lawn only when it needs it. Step on your grass. If it springs back when you lift your foot, it doesn't need water. So set the sprinklers for longer interval times or days in between watering. Saves 750 to 1,500 gallons a month. Also, make sure your sprinklers are not watering the sidewalks. 
  • Fix leaky faucets and plumbing joints. Saves 20 gallons a day for every leak fixed.
  • Don't run the hose while washing your car. Use a bucket of water and a quick hose rinse at the end. Saves 150 gallons each time. For a two-car family that's up to 1,200 gallons a month.
  • Install water-saving showerheads or flow restrictors. Saves 500 to 800 gallons a month.
  • Watch your water use when brushing your teeth, doing dishes by hand, shaving to make sure you are not letting water run freely down the drain.
  • When washing your dishes or clothes only do full loads in the washing machine and dishwasher. Saves 300 to 800 gallons a month.
  • Slightly shorter showers. One to two-minutes less in the shower can save up to 700 gallons a month.
  • Use a broom instead of a hose to clean driveways and sidewalks. Saves 150 gallons or more each time. At once a week, that's more than 600 gallons a month.
  • Don't use your toilet as an ashtray or wastebasket. Saves 400 to 600 gallons a month.
  • Capture tap water. While you wait for hot water to come down the pipes, catch the flow in a watering can to use later on house plants or your garden. Saves 200 to 300 gallons a month.
