How Can Residences Conserve Water?
by Bronwyn Timmons
Shutting off the water when scrubbing your teeth or the dishes can help conserve water.
Turn off Your Taps
Allowing the water to run while using your sink can result in excessive waste of water. Turn off the water while brushing your teeth or scrubbing dishes; only turn it on while rinsing your toothbrush or a dish. When washing fruits or vegetables, fill a pan or bowl with water for rinsing instead of washing them under running water. Running water results in waste because the faucet will produce more water than you realistically need to complete a task --- according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), a conventional faucet releases 5 gallons of water every two minutes (see References 4).
Wash Full Loads
Only run your washing machine and dishwasher when they are completely full. Doing so will result in fewer loads and maximum
water conservation. According to the EPA, simply following this practice with your dishwasher can save up to 600 gallons of water per month (see References 4).
