Water Awareness Month

  • Reduce showering time to save both water and energy. A 10 minute shower uses approximately 50 gallons of hot water. Shoot for a 5 minute shower.

  • Wash full loads of clothes and use more cold water to save both water and energy. Heating water uses a large amount of energy.

  • Water and energy are interconnected: It takes energy to transport and treat water, so by conserving water you are also conserving energy! Water is used to generate electricity, so by conserving energy you are also conserving water!
