Keeping the System Flowing

Water Conservation Tips

Conserving water is a collective effort that benefits us all. Here are seven simple tips to help you make a positive impact on our water resources:

1. Shorter Showers, Bigger Savings: Cut down your shower time by a few minutes and use a water-efficient shower head – you'll save gallons of water and reduce your utility bills.

2. Fix Leaks ASAP: Dripping faucets and leaks waste more water than you might think. Promptly fix any leaks to prevent water wastage.

3. Use Energy-Efficient Technology: When replacing a dishwasher, washing machine, water heater, or toilet, purchase energy-efficient products. This will cut back on your water consumption and cut utility costs.

4. Load Up the Washer and Dishwasher: Run full loads of laundry and dishes to maximize the use of water per cycle.

5. Capture Rainwater: Set up a rain barrel to collect rainwater for your plants. It's a sustainable way to keep your garden green without using tap water.

6. Use a Broom, Not a Hose: Instead of hosing down driveways and sidewalks, use a broom to remove debris. It's quick and water-free!

7. Mindful Watering: Adjust your sprinklers to avoid watering sidewalks and streets. Focus on your lawn and plants to get the most out of every drop. Water during sunrise or sunset to avoid losing water to evaporation.

By incorporating these basic water conservation practices into your daily routine, you contribute to the health of our water supply and the well-being of our community.

Keeping our wastewater system running smoothly is a shared responsibility. Here are seven effective tips to help minimize the load on our wastewater system and promote a cleaner environment:

1. Dispose of Fats and Oils Responsibly: Avoid pouring cooking oils and fats down the drain. Instead, let them cool, and then dispose of them in the trash. This prevents clogs in the pipes.

2. Use Trash Bins for Hygiene Products: Flushing hygiene products like wipes, cotton balls, and diapers can lead to blockages. Use trash bins to dispose of these items safely.

3. Don’t Flush Wipes: Flushable wipes do not dissolve in water like toilet paper. Wipes can clump together with other items in your sewer line and create sewer blockages. Dispose of wipes in the trash.

4. Mind Your Medicine Disposal: Pharmaceuticals should not be flushed down the toilet. Check for local medicine take-back programs to dispose of them properly.

5. Reduce Chemical Usage: Household chemicals can harm the sewer system. Use eco-friendly products and dispose of hazardous materials through designated channels.

6. Be Careful with Grease: Avoid washing grease and food scraps down the sink. Use strainers to catch food particles and dispose of them in the trash.

7. Properly Maintain Sewer Cleanouts: Know the location of your sewer cleanout points and keep them accessible. This helps in case of maintenance needs.

By adhering to these practices, you're not only preventing potential sewer blockages but also contributing to a cleaner, healthier community for all.
