We use water
every day: for drinking, showering, washing clothes, and flushing the
toilet. Water is used to manufacture coffee, milk, automobiles,
clothing. We depend on water to put out fires, produce energy, and cool
our homes. We used water yesterday, today, and we will use it tomorrow.
It is essential to our lives.
Conserving water means to use water wisely and to protect it. There are several benefits to conserving water:
Ensure a year round water supply
Saves you money (lower water bills, lower energy costs)
Prolongs the life of the water and wastewater distribution system
You save energy (in less water heater use, less energy required to pump to homes)
Helps to meet future water demands
Help the environment
