Home Water Conservation

- Adjust the float level to reduce the water required to flush. 

- Limit shower time. 

- Install a flow-control device in your showers. 

- Don’t use your clothes washing machine with less than a full load.

- Use a pan of water when peeling and cleaning vegetables and fruits rather than letting the sink tap run.

- Run the dishwasher only when it is completely full, and scrape rather than rinse dishes that go in the dishwasher.

- Water the lawn less frequently and only at night to reduce evaporation losses.

- Remove weeds promptly – they rob other plants of water.

- Mow less – mowing puts grass under stress, which makes it need more water.

- Mulch shrubs and garden plants to retain moisture in the soil longer.
