Some ways you can help:

  • Take shorter showers. This is the No. 1 most effective thing we can do (indoors) to conserve.
  • Consider installing “low flow” plumbing, i.e., toilets, shower heads, etc. Also, replace any leaky or defective parts.
  • Turn off the tap while brushing your teeth or shaving.
  • Never use the toilet as a wastebasket. Only human waste and toilet paper should go into the toilet — ever.
  • Run the washing machine only when full and adjust the water level setting carefully.
  • Stop or reduce outdoor watering.
