Responsible Water Use

Do you know how you can help conserve water or use water responsibly? Here are some tips::

It takes more water to wash dishes by hand. Use the dishwasher instead.
Take a shorter shower. If you take baths, don't fill the tub all the way to the top.
When your sprinklers are running, make sure they are not spraying the driveway or sidewalk. If they are, tell your parents.
Don't let a garden hose run. Make sure it has a nozzle to stop the water.
Ask your parents to use a broom instead of a hose to clean the driveway.
Turn off the water when you brush your teeth.
Ask your parents to use a car wash instead of washing their car at home. A car wash recycles water.
