It seems strange to promote water conservation in a region that receives about 38 inches of rain a year. But continued growth in our area means our water resources have to be stretched further to serve thousands of new residents and the new businesses and industries they bring with them. Conservation efforts help maintain a reliable, low-cost water supply that benefits current and future residents.
Conservation also saves you money — the less water you use, the less you pay. The average family of four uses 400 gallons of water a day. Every household could save some extra dollars every year by using water a little more wisely. Learn to read your meter so you can keep track of usage.
By becoming waste conscious, you can easily reduce your use by one-third. Saving water also saves the energy needed to pump water into your home and the cost of heating wasted hot water.
