5 Ways to Conserve...See what you can SAVE…


1. Water your lawn only when it needs it. If you leave footprints when walking across the grass, it’s time to water. SAVE: 750 to 1,500 gallons a month
2. Wash your car using a bucket of soapy water instead of letting the hose run. Use a positive shut-off nozzle. SAVE: 150 gallons per car wash
3. Use a broom or rake instead of a hose to clean driveways and sidewalks. SAVE: 150 gallons each time you sweep or rake
4. While waiting for hot water, capture running tap water for later use on household plants or in your garden. SAVE: 200 to 300 gallons a month
5. Run only full loads in the washing machine or dishwasher. SAVE: 300 to 800 gallons a month
