Inside:

  • Install an aerator on faucets to reduce the amount of water used by adding air to the water flow.
  • Replace washers in faucets to eliminate drips. A dripping tap can waste eight bathtubs of water in one month.
  • Install a low-flow shower head to reduce water use. They have the same pressure as regular shower heads.
  • Run only full loads in your dishwasher and clothes washer; wash in warm or cold water, not hot.
  • Replace old toilets with low flow toilets to reduce and reduce the amount of water use by 1 to 3 gallons per flush.
  • Be aware of the amount of water you use and look for ways to use less whenever you can.

Outside:

  • Water landscaping early in the morning or evening to avoid rapid evaporation.
  • Adjust sprinklers to water plants only (not pavement).
  • Mulch around all plant material to reduce evaporation.
  • Watch for runoff. Soil can only absorb so much moisture.
  • Learn what types of grass, shrubbery and plans do best in your area and plant accordingly. Plant the right plants in the right places.
