Water Department - Conservation Tips
- Water your lawn early in the morning or at night to avoid excess evaporation. Do not over-water your lawn.
- Fully load the dishwasher and clothes washer before running.
- Defrost frozen food in the refrigerator or in the microwave instead of running hot water over the food.
- When washing dishes by hand, do not let the water run.
- Use a broom, rather than a hose, to clean sidewalks and driveways.
- If you have a swimming pool, use a cover. You will cut the loss of water due to evaporation by 90 percent.
- Repair dripping faucets and leaky toilets. Dripping faucets can waste up to 2,000 gallons of water each year in the average home. Leaky toilets can waste as much as 200 gallons per day.
- Do not leave the sink running while you brush your teeth.
