Whether one obtains water from a rural or public water supply or a private well, wasted water is money down the drain.  Here are some tips to help preserve our State's water supply:

  • Fixing leaky faucets and plumbing joints saves 20 gallons per day for every leak stopped

  • Shortening your showers by one or two minutes can save up to 700 gallons per month
