[ARCHIVED] Massachusetts is in a Drought! Tips for Saving Water

Tips for Saving Water

When in Drought or Not - Please Do Your Part! 

Outdoor Water Use

  1. Limit lawn watering, especially during a drought
  2. Minimize landscape water needs through water-smart landscaping principles
  3. Minimize your use of water outdoors. 

Indoor Water Use

  1. Choose high-efficiency plumbing products and appliances
  2. Turn off water while brushing teeth or shaving: "Never Let the Water Run"
  3. Take shorter showers (5 minutes or less) and use water-saving showerheads 
  4. Wash only full loads of laundry and dishes
  5. Fix leaks! Dripping faucets and leaking toilets, pipes, and appliances can add up to hundreds of gallons of water lost per week.
  6. Create a kitchen compost bin instead of using the garbage disposal
  7. Collect and reuse clean household water (water running while you wait for hot water to reach your faucet or shower; leftover water from cooking, etc.) and use this to water plants
