Water-wise tips for July

https://droughtmonitor.unl.edu/CurrentMap/StateDroughtMonitor.aspx?CA

As you may be aware, California is experiencing yet another unprecedented drought. Here are a few things you can do to reduce your water consumptions and help with both the drought and your next water bill!

  • Keep a pitcher of water in the refrigerator instead of running the tap until the water gets cold. That saves time and water!
  • Always sweep your driveway with a broom; don’t use water to wash the leaves away. 
  • Washing the dishes while leaving the water running can use up to 20 gallons of water, but filling the sink or a bowl and closing the faucet saves 10 of those gallons. 
  • If you turn off the water while brushing your teeth, you save water. Newer faucets use about 1 gallon per minute, while older models use over 2 gallons.
  • Water leaks account for 12% of water use in California homes. Check indoor and outdoor faucets & toilets often.
