Did you know that the average American uses approximately 100 gallons of water EVERY day? We are using so much water that some parts of the country are actually running out of clean, drinkable water. Since water is a limited resource, it is so important that we use it wisely.
There are three basic ways to use less water
- Change your habits. Think about the amount of water you are using and how you could use less.
- Repair leaks. A single dripping faucet can waste hundreds or gallons per year.
- Install water-saving devices, such as water-efficient or low-flow fixtures, or displacement devices.
When you save water, you also
- Save money
- Save energy
- Help protect the environment
