Imagine a day without water - September 15, 2016
Can you imagine a day without water? How would you brush your teeth, clean and prepare your food or live if you didn't have water? The goal of Imagine a Day Without Water is to get the public to realize what a powerful resource water is and its impact on lives.water

Do you conserve water? There are so many ways to make sure that we conserve the water we do have. While the city has plenty of water in our supply, it's important that we not waste. Some tips to save water include:

  • Follow city watering restrictions and water your lawn before 10 a.m. or after 7 p.m. 
  • Turn your sprinkler system off for the week if we've experienced heavy rains. 
  • When shopping, look for WaterSense labeled products, which have been independently certified for efficiency and performance, and promote water-saving techniques. The average home, retrofitted with water-efficient products can save up to 30,000 gallons of water a year.
  • Collect rainwater for outdoor use during the peak summer months and you can save as much as 1,300 gallons of water.
  • If every household fixed just one leaky faucet, we could reduce water use in Texas by more than 13 billion gallons a year!
  • Install a water-efficient shower head that can reduce water consumption by 25% to 60% and save energy.
  • Check your toilet by using a leak-detection dye tablet; otherwise, you could be wasting about 200 gallons of water a day.
  • Turn off the water faucet while you brush your teeth and save up to 4 gallons of water per minute.
  • Replacing older toilets with water-efficient toilets can save 9,000 gallons of water a year.
  • Washing only full loads of laundry can save an average household more than 3,400 gallons of water each year. 

Consider adopting a water-saving technique today. Together we can make a difference. Water is vital to everything we do. Tell us why you #valuewaterPf.
