Little leaks add up in a hurry. A faucet drip or invisible toilet leak that totals only two tablespoons a minute comes to 15 gallons a day. That’s 105 gallons a week and 5460 wasted gallons of water a year.

Select the appropriate water level for the size of your load of laundry. Most washers now offer pre-set water levels for small, medium, and large loads. Use full loads whenever possible.

Adjust your lawn mower to a higher setting. The grass blades grow longer and shade one another, as well as the ground, helping to fight off heat and hold moisture longer.

Use a broom, rather than a hose to clean sidewalks or driveways.

Report significant water losses from broken pipes, open fire hydrants and errant sprinklers to the property owner or to CPUD.
