Turn the water off while shaving and/or brushing your teeth.
Check every faucet in your home for leaks. Just a slow drip can waste 15 to 20 gallons a day! Fix it and you can save almost 6,000 gallons a year.
Use your water meter to detect hidden leaks. Simply turn off all taps and water-using appliances. Then check the meter after 15 minutes; if it moved, you have leak.
Replace older fixtures with water-saving devices.
Take showers instead of baths.
Limit lawn watering – water your lawn only when necessary, and water before 10 a.m.
Put a layer of mulch around trees and plants to hold water for your plantings.
