APRIL IS WATER CONSERVATION MONTH - BE A WISE WATER USER!

Water conservation is a key link between balancing current and future water needs, our water supply has diminished over the years, and its time all citizens take a proactive stance to ensure future generations have water.  Here are some smart tips:

  •    Scrape, don’t rinse your dishes before loading them into the dishwasher. 
  •    Use your garbage disposal sparingly and start composting your kitchen waste.
  •    Check the hoses on your washing machine regularly for leaks.  
  •    Insulate your water pipes; you will get hot water faster and avoid wasting water while it heats up.
  •    Turn your water softener off while you are on vacation. 
  •    DO NOT leave sprinklers unattended. Set a kitchen timer to remind yourself to shut off the sprinklers.
  •    DO NOT hose down your driveway. Use a broom or blower to clean leaves and other debris from these areas. 
  •    Rain barrels are great for watering plants. (Instructions for building a rain barrel are available at City Hall)   
  •    Use a shut off nozzle on your water hose and when you are finished shut the water off at the spigot to avoid leaks.

 

DID YOU KNOW:

  • A garden hose WITHOUT a shutoff nozzle can pour out 540 gallons in 1 hour?
  • When washing your car; try to use a commercial car wash that recycles water. 
  • When washing your car at home, park your car on the grass; use a hose with a shutoff nozzle and a bucket of soapy water.
