Check every faucet and toilet for leaks. Even a slow drip can waste a lot of water each day.
Take short showers and shallow baths.
Turn off the water while you are brushing your teeth or scraping the dishes or washing your hands.
Don’t use the toilet to flush away tissues, gum wrappers or any other small scraps. It is not a trash can!
Be careful to water the lawn, not the sidewalk or street.
Fill the dishwasher and clothes washer with soiled dishes or clothing. Washing partial loads can waste electricity, water and money!
Never use a hose to clean off the driveway. A broom is better and it doesn’t use water at all!
Use a bucket of water to wash the car and a hose to rinse it off.
Keep a jug of drinking water in the refrigerator; then you won’t have to run water to cool it.
Turn off drinking fountains and sinks in public places.
USE WHAT YOU NEED – THEN TURN IT OFF!
