Water Conservation Tips For California Residents
We are in a deep drought. In case Governor Jerry Brown’s calls to slash water usage have not been enough to draw attention to this fact, you likely know it from your firsthand experience. So that we can all do our part to save water during this California drought, we would like to offer the following water conservation tips.
- If you have a dishwasher, use it. Wait until it is full to run your load in order to minimize water waste. Running the dishwasher uses significantly less water than washing dishes by hand. If you do not have a dishwasher, you can still cut your water usage by filling you basin with dishwater rather than letting it run the whole time.
- If you drop an ice cube on the floor, do not simply throw it away. Instead, drop it in a house plant to give it a drink.
- Wait until you have a full load of laundry to run your washer. Wash them in cold water to save both water and energy (and to keep darks and colors from fading).
- Shorten your shower by just two minutes and save 150 gallons of water a month.
- A drip every second can waste five gallons of water a day. If you notice a leak in your home, repair it right away.
- Your toilet might be leaking without you knowing it. Put a little food coloring in your toilet tank. If the color ends up in the bowl without your flushing, you have a leak that can be fixed to reduce your water waste.
