Why Conserve Water?

Protect
the Environment

While our population continues to grow, the supply of water on earth is finite. When you use water efficiently, you help to maintain our supply, reduce pollutants, and conserve our natural resources.

Save $170+ on
Your Water Bill

When you update your kitchen and bath faucets, you save money. For an average home, that means spending about $170 less on your annual water bill.

Reduce Our Use
of Energy, Too

If just one of every 100 homes in the U.S. installed new water-saving fixtures, we could reduce our electricity consumption by 100 million kilowatts.

Home Water Conservation Tips

With a few small changes, you can make a big difference. Here are some simple tips to conserve water in the home. By adopting just one of these tips, you could save hundreds of gallons of water per month, reduce the water bill, protect the environment, and sustain water for future generations.

Fix-it Tips:

  1. Twisting on an aerator can save up to 500 gallons per year
  2. Installing water efficient showerheads and/or faucets can save 500-800 gallons per month
  3. Fixing leaky faucets or plumbing joints can save 20 gallons per day for every leak stopped

Household Tips:

  1. Turning off water while brushing your teeth can save 3 gallons each day
  2. Running only full loads in the washing machine and dishwasher can save 300-800 gallons per month
  3. Shortening showers can save 700 gallons per month for every minute

Garden Tips:

  1. Washing fruits and vegetables in a pot of water and reusing water for plants can save 150-250 gallons per month
  2. Adding mulch to your garden conserves moisture and reduces the need for frequent watering, which can save 750-1,500 gallons a month
  3. Planning a low-water-use garden (also known as a xeriscape) by planting native flora and drought resistant perennials can save 750-1,500 gallons a month
