Conservation - Helpful Tips

INSIDE THE HOME

  • Install low-flow showerheads and low-flow faucet aerators.
  • When you upgrade your dishwasher, laundry washer, or toilet, select a low-flow or water efficient model.
  • Turn off water when brushing teeth and washing hands.
  • Check faucets, showerheads, and pipes for leaks.
  • Check for running toilets.
  • Insulate hot water pipes.
  • Take shorter showers.
  • Run the dishwasher and clothes washer only when full.
  • Minimize use of the kitchen garbage disposal.
  • When washing dishes by hand, do not leave the water running for rinsing.
  • Do not use your toilet as a garbage can.
  • Keep a pitcher of drinking water in the refrigerator.
  • When you have a leaky toilet or faucet, call a certified plumber right away. Until it’s fixed, turn the water valve off when not in use.

OUTSIDE THE HOME

  • Check faucets and pipes for leaks.
  • Monitor irrigation or sprinkler times and change or turn off when rain is more prevalent.
  • Position sprinklers to water only what you want. Don’t water sidewalks or streets.
  • Water early in the day. Don’t water when it’s windy.
  • Put mulch around trees and plants to absorb water and decrease watering times.
  • Use a drip-irrigation system for shrubs and trees.
  • Use a spray nozzle and bucket when washing your car.
  • Use a broom and not a hose to clean your driveway or sidewalk.
  • Check irrigation or sprinkler lines in the spring for leaks or breaks.
  • Check water bills for unexpected high usage.
