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.
