Water is our most precious resource. As our planet becomes more crowded and the demand for clean drinking water grows, it's increasingly important that we look for creative ways to reduce needless waste. You might underestimate how small changes can really add up. Did you know simply by turning off the water while you brush your teeth, you may save up to as much as 25 gallons per month? (A great way to make this point with kids is to show them at the grocery store what 25 gallons of milk looks like... that's a lot of water!) Even shortening your shower by two minutes can add up to 150 gallons per month.
Below are some creative tips you can use to cut down on your water consumption, lower your water bills, and preserve a resource we truly can't live without:
1. Keep a pitcher of water in the refrigerator instead of running the tap. Instead of waiting for cold water, every drop ends up as part of your drink.
2. Wash veggies and fruits in a pan of water, then gather the water you use and reuse it to water indoor plants.
3. Consider installing an instant water heater near your kitchen, so you don't have to run the water excessively when you need hot water. (This can also reduce overall energy expenses.)
4. Remember: Washing dark clothes in cold water saves on both water and energy, and it helps your clothes retain their vibrancy.
5. Rather than following a set watering schedule for your lawn and garden, check for soil moisture two to three inches below the surface before watering. If it's still moist, hold off on running those sprinklers.
6. Reduce the amount of lawn you have to water by practicing xeriscaping, which is landscaping and gardening that reduces or eliminates the need for supplemental water from irrigation. (Rocks, natural, local vegetation, etc.)
7. Does your shower fill a 1-gallon bucket in less than 20 seconds? Replace your shower head with a water-efficient model.

Water is our most precious resource. As our planet becomes more crowded and the demand for clean drinking water grows, it’s increasingly important that we look for creative ways to reduce needless waste. You might underestimate how small changes can really add up. Did you know simply by turning off the water while you brush your teeth, you may save up to as much as 25 gallons per month? (A great way to make this point with kids is to show them at the grocery store what 25 gallons of milk looks like... that’s a lot of water!) Even shortening your shower by two minutes can add up to 150 gallons per month.

While North County residents' water conservation efforts are helping, it's tough to say how much rain we'll get this winter. Every drop of water saved helps, and here are some creative tips you can use to cut down on your water consumption, lower your water bills, and preserve a resource we truly can’t live without:

1. Keep a pitcher of water in the refrigerator instead of running the tap. Instead of waiting for cold water, every drop ends up as part of your drink.
