Water Conservation

One of the driest years in California’s recorded history was in 2015. This incident has led people to talk about ways on how to save water.

Recycling or using less water has many benefits including conserving energy, protecting wild animals, and preventing excessive use of this finite resource. In addition, water conservation helps both individuals and governments save money.

How You Can Save Water

The average home uses more than 200 gallons of water per day, most of which is wasted. By making a few small changes, you can do so much to support water conservation efforts.

  • Washing Full Loads of Dishes or Laundry
  • Finding and Fixing Any Leaky Faucets
  • Installing Efficient Faucets and/or Faucet Aerators
  • Turning Off the Faucet When Lathering Hands, Shaving, or Brushing Teeth
  • Installing Low Flow Toilets and Shower Heads

Make sure that you also know where your master shut off valve is located because it could save gallons of water and prevent damage if a pipe were to burst. Also, make it a habit to check water bills for any instances of high water use as this may indicate a leak.

Water Conservation and Gardening

Because water evaporates more quickly when it’s hot, you can try watering in the morning or later in the evening when temperatures are cooler. If your lawn has an irrigation system, make sure that it is properly set up and maintained. Landscaping using water-wise landscaping principles and using native plants or plants that require little water to thrive in your region can also help in saving water.
