Water Saving Tips Inside the Home

  • Turn the faucet off while brushing your teeth, rinse with a glass of water.
  • When shaving, use a sink filled with rinse water.
  • Take short showers instead of baths.
  • Fill the sink with water to pre-rinse dishes before putting them in the dishwasher.

Water Recycling Tips

  • Place a bucket in the shower to catch water that is wasted while you adjust your shower water temperature and recycle this water for plants or other watering uses.

  • Other sources of water that can be recycled easily for other watering purposes include:

    • Pet dishes

    • Flower vases

    • Leftover water from cooking or drinking

    • Dehumidifier water

Water Saving Tips Outside the Home

  • Use a broom, not a hose, to clean driveways, steps, and sidewalks.

  • Wash the car with water from a bucket. If a hose is used, control the flow with an automatic shut off nozzle.

  • Water the lawn or garden during the coolest part of the day and avoid windy days.

  • Use soaker hoses and trickle irrigation systems to reduce the amount of water used for irrigation.

  • Use mulch around shrubs and garden plants to reduce evaporation from the soil surface and cut down on weed growth.
