Garbage Disposal

A garbage disposal requires a lot of
water to operate properly. Use a
disposal only when necessary.
 

 

Dishwasher

Use your automatic dishwasher only
for full loads.
 

Toilet Flushing
 

Avoid using your toilet as a
wastebasket. Tissues, insects and
other things belong in a
trash can, not the toilet.
 

Bathing
 

Take only shallow baths.
Washing Dishes by Hand
When washing dishes by hand, fill
one sink or basin with soapy water
and fill the rinsing sink to one-third
or one-half full — avoid letting the
water run continuously in the rinsing sink.  

Laundry

Run only full loads in the washing
machine. Running the machine when
it’s full will save you time, energy and
water.
 

Shower

Limit the time water
runs while you’re taking a shower.
Install a low-flow showerhead.
Washing Hands
Don’t let the water run
while you are washing
your hands.

Yard Watering

Water only on your watering day and
only when 30 percent of the lawn shows
signs of wilt: leaf blades folded in half,
blue-gray color and footprints remain
on the lawn for several minutes
after walking on it.
Brushing Teeth
Turn off the water while
brushing your teeth.
