Indoor Water Saving Tips


  • Take a five-minute (or less) shower and/or turn off the water while lathering or shampooing.
  • Turn off the sink faucet while brushing your teeth.
  • Operate the washing machine with full loads only.
  • Plug the sink and use that water instead of letting it run while you wash dishes.
  • Run the dishwasher only when full and use the lowest water-setting level.
