Water Conservation: The latest

January 24, 2023

Water conservation

Overall water supply

Where we started: 71 percent

Where we are: 67 percent

Water use

Last week: 4.34 million gallons per day

The problem

Drought conditions and supply chain issues delaying the renovation of the Caney River Pump Station

Easiest ways to make a difference

40 percent of household water use is flushing the toilet. Don’t use the toilet for anything other than human waste and toilet paper! And a running toilet can use as much as 200 gallons of water per hour, running your bill UP and the overall water supply DOWN. Replace any defective parts.

Shortening your shower by just a couple of minutes can save more water than you think.

Turn off the water anytime you’re not using it!
