Where can I find some Water Conservation Information?

There are many ways to lower your daily water use, from devices installed on fixtures within your residence to changing some everyday habits. The Massachusetts Water Resource Authority (MWRA) offers many valuable tips. Some quick examples are:

1. Faucets – Consider installing low-flow fixtures to reduce the flow of water from your faucets.

2. Toilets – The MWRA offers free dye tablets to place in your toilet tank to check for water leaks. If you find a leak, contact a licensed plumber to repair the leak. This will help you to conserve water and save you money. Limit flushing by keeping products that can be disposed in the wastebasket out of the toilet. When installing a new toilet, consider one with a lower gallon per flush rating.

3. Showers/Baths – Consider taking shorter showers, installing low-flow showerheads, and filling bathtubs with less water when bathing.

4. Kitchen – Consider using basins instead of constant running water for cleaning, run sink disposals at the end of clean-up instead of multiple times throughout, and run a dishwasher when it is full, or use a small load/quick cycle setting for fewer dishes.
