It is more important than ever to find ways to save water and money! Here are easy water saving tips you can implement around the house.

Wash your cloths with full loads only.
By waiting for a full load, you not only save the amount of water used but also the amount of electricity.
Soak your vegetables.
Instead of running your vegetables under the tap, fill a container or your basin with soap and water to soak your vegetables. Then reuse the waste water for your plants.
Only run the dishwasher when it’s full.
Similar to the washing machine, by running only full loads, you will save water and money.
Be efficient when watering your lawn.

  • Water less often but for longer periods of time.
  • Only water when necessary.
  • Water your plants during cooler times of the day as there is less evaporation at those times.
  • Water your lawn on still days when there is less wind.

Never hose your driveways and sidewalks.
Sweep your trash or debris and dispose of them in the trash can to save water and prevent it from ending up in the storm drains.
Don’t leave the water running when you wash your car – in fact, go to a car wash!
The most efficient use of water is at the car wash. Not only will you save water and time, but you’ll also prevent debris from going to the ocean.
