Tips for conserving water

By
From page A8 | February 20, 2014 |

The state’s Save Our Water program, which seeks to cut everyday water use, offers the following suggestions:
Indoors
* Do only full loads of dishes and laundry and get water-efficient appliances, including toilets.
* Install an aerator on the kitchen faucet to reduce the flow.
* Install low-flow shower heads, reduce shower time to five minutes, and fill bathtubs halfway, at most.
* Don’t use the toilet to flush away trash, and turn off the faucet while shaving or brushing teeth.
Outdoors
* Use efficient irrigation systems, and water early in the morning or late in the evening.
* Water deeply but less frequently, select drought-resistant plants, and use mulch around them.
* Use a broom rather than a hose to clean driveways and patios.
* Wash vehicles with a bucket and a sponge, plus a hose with a self-closing nozzle.
