General Water Saving Tips

  • Be aware of and follow all water conservation and water shortage rules in effect in your community. Don't assume, even if you get your water from a private well, that you need not observe good water use rules. Every drop counts.
  • Encourage your employer to promote water conservation in the workplace. Suggest that water conservation be put in employee orientation and training programs.
  • Report all significant water losses (broken pipes, open hydrants, errant sprinklers, abandoned free-flowing wells, etc.) to the property owner, local authorities or your water management district.
  • Encourage your school system and local government to help develop and promote a water conservation ethic among children and adults.
  • Support projects that will lead to an increased use of reclaimed waste water for irrigationi and other uses.
  • Support efforts and programs that create a concern for water conservation among tourists and visitors to our state. Make sure your visitors understand the need for, and benefits of, water conservation.
  • Encourage your friends and neighbors to be part of a water-conscious community. Promote water conservation in community newsletters, on bulletin boards and by example. Encourage your friends, neighbors and co-workers to "do their part".
  • Conserve water because it is the right thing to do. Don't waste water just because someone else is footing the bill, such as when you are staying at a hotel.
  • Try to do one thing each day that will result in saving water. Don't worry if the savings are minimal. Every drop counts. You can make a difference.
