HOW can YOU make a difference!
  • When brushing your teeth, turn the water off until it is time to rinse.

  • Do not use hot water when cold will do. Water and energy can be        saved that way!

  • Never use the toilet as a disposal. This wastes so much water!!

  • Wash your hair in the shower to save water!

  • If you do not have a shower...then use less water in the tub.

  • Take a shower instead of taking a bath. Showers with low flow             showerheads often use less water than taking a bath.

  • Take shorter showers and install a cut off valve or turn off the water    while washing and back on when you need to rinse.

  • Install a low-flow showerhead that limits the flow from the shower to    less than three gallons per minute.

  • If you shave with the tap on, you use an estimated 10 to 20 gallons     each time! Turn the tap off.

  • Washing dishes with the tap running can use an average of 30             gallons of water! Turn the tap off...Save Water Now.

  • You can use more than 5 gallons of water is you keep the tap               running while you brush your teeth! Save Water ...turn it off!

  • Don't wash dishes with continuously running water, instead, fill a         dishpan for washing and one for rinsing. Protect Each Drop!
