Water Conservation


WaterConsPage_smallpicConserving water resources makes sense all around!  By doing the same with less water, homeowners save on their water bill, streams and lakes receive less dirty runoff, and energy intensive water treatment plants don’t need to work as hard.

Several small and large scale water conservation technologies are currently being used. Some of the more common practices are listed below.

Structural Practices Non-Structural Practices
Rainwater Harvesting Use of native and water-wise plants
Rain barrels Efficient irrigation
Rain gardens Clearing of driveway debris by sweeping instead of hosing
Low-flow toilets and shower heads Reducing wasteful water use
Flow restrictors for taps
Water efficient appliances
Grey water recycling
