10 Easy Water Conservation Tips:

1. Water your yard throughly, but only as needed - usually no more than 1 inch, once a week.

2. Use drip irrigation for plants and gardens, and water early in the morning to minimize evaporation.

3. Collecting rainwater for landscape use is great for the plants and can save you water and money. 

4. Install aerators to cut in half the amount of water used by each faucet.

5. Fix faucet leaks, which can waste great amounts a year.

6. Install water-efficient plumbing fixtures to reduce water consumption by 25% to 60% and save energy.

7. Check your toilet by using a leak-detection dye tablet. Leaks can waste up to 200 gallons of water a day.

8. Replace older toilets with water-efficient models and save up to 4000 gallons of water a year.

9. Washing only full loads of laundry can save an average household more than 3,400 gallons of water each year.

10 Invest in an ENERGY STAR-qualified clothes washer, which typically uses 50% less water and 30% less energy per load.
