Water Conservation Tips
When washing dishes by hand, don't let the water run while rinsing. Fill one sink with wash water and the other with rinse water.
Run your washing machine and dishwasher only when they are full and you could save 1,000 gallons a month.
Use the garbage disposal sparingly as disposals waste water and create havoc for your plumbing.
Compost your food scraps instead and save gallons every time.
Throw trimmings and peelings from fruits and vegetables into your yard compost to prevent from using the garbage disposal.
Wash your produce in the sink or a pan that is partially filled with water instead of running water from the tap.
Designate one glass for your drinking water each day. This will cut down on the number of times you run your dishwasher.
When you have ice left in your cup from a take-out restaurant, don't throw it in the trash, dump it on a plant.
Don't use running water to thaw food.
If you accidentally drop ice cubes when filling your glass from the freezer, don't throw them in the sink. Drop them in a house plant instead.
Cut back on rinsing if your dishwasher is new. Newer models clean more thoroughly than older ones.
Make sure there are aerators on all of your faucets.
Soak your pots and pans instead of letting the water run while you scrape them clean.
Cook food in as little water as possible. This will also retain more of the nutrients.
Select the proper size pans for cooking. Large pans require more cooking water than may be necessary.
Turn off the faucet while washing your hands, brushing your teeth, shaving and rinsing dishes.
