Conserve: WATER U waiting 4?

Why conserve water?

We use water every day: for drinking, showering, washing clothes, and flushing the toilet. Water is used to manufacture coffee, milk, automobiles,
and 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
