Water Conservation Tips for Everyone

The average person each day uses about 62 gallons of water, with the majority of water used for clothes washing, toilet flushing and showering, followed by faucet use and leaky fixtures.

Replace an old toilet with a new 1.6 gallon-per-flush model. This measure can save a typical household from 7,900 to 21,700 gallons of water per year;

Save over 1,000 gallons per year by placing a plastic jug of water or commercial "dam" in older toilet tanks to cut down on the amount of water needed for each flush...more


 

Repair dripping faucets and leaking toilets (flapper valves are usually the cause). Repairs can save more than 10 gallons of water per person per day. A faucet dripping at one drop per second wastes 2,700 gallons per year;

Wash clothes and dishes only when you have a full load. When replacing an older machine, consider high efficiency models, which use an average of 30 percent less water and 40-50 percent less energy, saving about 9 gallons per washing machine cycle and 7.5 gallons per dishwasher cycle;

Install low-flow, water-efficient showerheads and faucets and save 1-to-7.5 gallons per minute. Taking a quick shower can save an average of 20 gallons of water; and

Turn off the water when brushing teeth or shaving to save more than 5 gallons per day.
