    Water Conservation

    Every Drop Counts

    Resource conservation starts at home. Water is our most important precious resource. A dripping faucet can waste 100 gallons a day. By fixing leaking gaskets and installing low flow shower heads, you can make a difference. You will save water and not use energy to heat it. Those savings trickle down the pipe to those who pump and clean the water, conserving more energy and labor costs. When you save water, you save money.

    What can YOU do to help?

    1. Run only full loads in the washing machine and dishwasher.

    2. Stop dripping faucets by installing new washers.

    3. Add a few drops of food coloring to your toilet's tank. if the toilet needs repair, color will appear in the bowl within 15 minutes. (Flush when the test is done since food coloring may stain tank).

    4. When replacing appliances, choose water and energy efficient models.
