According to the American Water Works Association Americans use nearly 347,000 million gallons of freshwater each day. Up to 70 percent of the water used is spread on lawns and gardens. An average family uses 69.3 gallons per day, a good portion (over 66 percent) is used in showers, washing machines and on toilet flushing. Here are some tips to conserve water:
1. Stop leaks.
2. Replace old toilets with more water efficient models.
3. Time to get a new close washer
4. Plant trees, vegetation and flowers that are right for your local climate.
5. Water your plants and lawn only when they need it
