Conserve Water

Earth may be known as the “water planet”, but while 70% of its surface is covered by water, less than 1% is available for human use. Water supplies are finite and it’s up to us to protect this critical and precious resource.

Everything from upgrading the appliances in your house, to fixing small leaks, to simple behavior changes can add up to big water savings. It’s not as difficult as you think!

Many Water Departments encourage water efficiency by offering rebates for water efficient toilets and clothes washers, and by offering free water efficient showerheads and faucet aerators.  Check with your Water Department prior to making a purchase to see what they offer.

WaterSense promolabel_blue_lookMake sure to look for the WaterSense label when replacing water appliances.  WaterSense is a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) program designed to encourage water efficiency in the United States through the use of a special label on consumer products. WaterSense is to water appliances, what Energystar is to electrical items.
