WATER: Pledge to Protect
and Conserve it.

I understand that water is my community’s most precious and natural resource. How we manage water today will affect nearly every aspect of our future. I acknowledge that I must to do my part to stretch the water supply. Our water supply is not endless and it is important for me to change my habits to conserve water.

Water your yard during the cool parts of the day (mornings are best).

Check for outside leaks in pipes, hoses faucets and couplings. This not only saves water, it saves you money too.

Turn off the tap when you brush your teeth.

Check for and repair, dripping faucets and leaking toilets throughout the home. A leaky faucet wastes 20 gallons per day. A leaky toilet wastes 200 gallons a day.

Repurpose the water you use to rinse fruits and veggies, and deposit it in the garden. Do the same while you wait for your hot water to come in.

Start a compost pile to dispose of food waste, instead of using a garbage disposal.

Capture rainwater using a 55-gallon for use in the garden.

Make sure your diswasher and washer are full before starting a cycle.

Cover up your pool. Pool covers reduce evaporation and keep it clean. It cuts amount of replacement water by 30%-50%.

Cut down on car washing or use a commercial car wash, they recycle water.

I have viewed and accepted the challenge.
