It’s true what a lot of the local public officials are saying: “Every Drop Counts”. Don’t leave your shower running just to heat it up, and turn off your faucet while you are brushing your teeth until it’s time to rinse.
For the more technical aspects of water conservation, we fancy ourselves as experts on the matter. Did you know that close to ten gallons per household, on average is lost to leaks? That amounts to well over 10 percent of your water bill! Also, homeowners should look into upgrading to energy-efficient “Energy Star” appliances, these don’t waste water (or electricity) as much as their older counterparts. Also, you should adjust your settings on your washer so that is appropriate to the amount of clothes you are putting in– this will save you many, many gallons per month in water.
