• Remember to weed your lawn and garden regularly. Weeds compete with other plants for nutrients, light and water.
• Water your plants deeply, but less frequently, to create healthier and stronger landscapes.
• Adjust your watering schedule to the season. Water your summer lawn every third day and your winter lawn every fifth day.
• Designate one glass for your drinking water each day. This will cut down on the number of times you run your dishwasher
• Use a broom instead of a hose to clean your driveway or sidewalk and save 80 gallons of water every time.
• Run your washing machine and dishwasher only when they are full and you could save 1,000 gallons a month.
• Plug the bathtub before turning the water on, then adjust the temperature as the tub fills up.
• Before you lather up, install a low-flow showerhead. They’re inexpensive, easy to install and can save your family more than 500 gallons a week.
• Turn off the water while you brush your teeth and save 4 gallons a minute. That’s 200 gallons a week for a family of four.
• When you give your pet fresh water, don’t throw the old water down the drain. Use it to water your trees, shrubs or houseplants.
Do one thing each day that will save water. Even if the savings are small, every drop counts!
