Conserve water!

Water is the one substance on earth that naturally exists as a gas, a liquid, and a solid. The earth contains more than 330 million cubic miles of water. of that, 96.5 percent is salt water in our global oceans,. About another 1.75 percent is frozen in the polar icecaps and in glaciers, and 1.75 is found in rivers, lakes, streams, groundwater, and soil.

only 0.001 percent of the earth's water exists as vapor in the atmosphere.

(David Helvarg)

Even in areas with abundant water resources it makes sense to conserve water, because the less water flowing into local septic, sewage, and storm-drain systems, the better our waste facilities can process their loads and reduce polluted runoff into our natural waterways, bays and oceans. Conserving water also saves money and energy.

Here are some examples of what you can do to conserve water:



1)Turn off the faucet while brushing your teeth.

2)Only run the washing machine and dishwasher when you have a full load.

3)Use a low flow shower head and faucet aerators.

4)Fix leaks.

5)Install a dual flush or low flow toilet or put a conversion kit on your existing toilet.

6)Don’t overwater your lawn or water during peak periods, and install rain sensors on irrigation systems.

7)Install a rain barrel for outdoor watering.

8)Plant a rain garden for catching stormwater runoff from your roof, driveway, and other hard surfaces.

9)Monitor your water usage on your water bill and ask your local government about a home water audit.

10)Share your knowledge about saving water through conservation and efficiency with your neighbors.

It's so simple to do
