Help with Conservation
Water is one of our greatest natural resources, what would you do without it? The human body requires water daily, as do all warm-blooded animals (including cows, horses, pigs, and birds) and many reptiles. So, how can you help?
There are 4 basic ways to save water:
- Repair Leaks
- Install Water-saving Devices
- Reuse Water
Be aware of the amount of water you are using and look for ways you can use less whenever possible. Never leave the water running and then walk away from the faucet.
A leak of 1 drop per second wastes 2,400 gallons per year. Repairing leaking faucets not only saves water, it will also save you money in the long run.
Install Water-Saving Devices
There are several different kinds of devices you can purchase inexpensively or make yourself, such as: aerators, flow regulators, and displacement devices.
Used water is often suitable for other purposes: bath water can be reused to water lawns or shrubs, or for washing your car.
