Water Conservation Tips

Water

Did you know that the average U.S. household uses approximately 400 gallons of water per day or 100 gallons per person per day?  Luckily there are many low-cost and no-cost ways to conserve water.  Small changes can make a big difference - try one today and soon it will become second nature.  


-Turn off the Tap! - Just by turning off the tap when you brush your teeth in the morning and before bedtime, you can save up to 200 gallons of water a month!

-Shower Power! - Taking a shower uses much less water than filling up a bathtub.  A shower only uses 10 to 25 gallons, while a bath takes up to 70 gallons.  To save even more water, keep your shower under five minutes long.

-Fix that Leak! - Fixing a toilet leak is a great way to reduce household water use and boost water conservation.  If your toilet has a leak, you could be wasting about 200 gallons of water every day.  To check your toilet for a leak, place a few drops of food coloring in the tank and wait.  If it seeps into the toilet bowl without flushing, you have a leak.  For more water-saving tips, please visit www.epa.gov/watersense.
