Save Water

How To Save Water - 20 Easy Tips | My Own WaterIt has been hot a great deal over the summer. Water is at a premium.

However, as New Yorkers, we don’t pay for our water directly. Over the last number of years, we have come to understand the power of water as a destructive force; yet, we are made up of water and depend upon it as a life-giving source.


Let us use our awareness of how important water is in order to take this time to think about the many ways in which we can conserve water.

Water is a valuable limited resource that must be used efficiently in order to meet the challenge of supporting the varied and increasing water uses of New Yorkers. We use water for drinking, irrigation, producing electricity, cooking, manufacturing industrial products, cleaning, and more.

Here are a few tips:

  • Run the dishwasher and washing machine only when full. Save even more by using the short cycle.
  • Take shorter showers and save 5–7 gallons a minute
  • When taking a bath, fill the tub only halfway and save 10–15 gallons
  • Install water-saving toilets, showerheads and faucet aerators. Place a plastic bottle filled with water in your toilet tank if you cannot switch to a low-flow toilet.
  • Turn off the faucet while shaving, washing your hands or brushing your teeth. Faucets use 2–3 gallons a minute.
