Water Conservation Tips

Small changes can make a big impact in saving water.

The first step to cut water waste is to fix any water leaks.  Over a one year period, leaky faucets and toilets in the home waste approximately 10,000 gallons per year.  That’s enough water to fill a swimming pool!  That adds up to significant water waste and higher utility costs.  Take action and use the following tips to do your part and conserve water inside and outside the home.
