Water Saving Tips

Water is expensive — these water saving tips are provided by Jefferson Utilities, Inc.

• Run your dishwasher and laundry with full loads
• Wash fruits and vegetables in a pan of water instead of under a running faucet
• Hold a one (1) gallon bucket in your shower. If the bucket fills up in less than 20 seconds, then you should consider replacing your shower head with a more water efficient model
• Verify you have no leaking toilets of faucets. We’re more likely to notice leaks indoors, but don’t forget to check outdoor faucets, sprinklers and hoses for leaks

These are the approximate amounts of water used for common household activities:
•   Laundry – 30 gallons per load
•   Shower/tub – 30 gallons per shower
•   Toilet – 5 gallons per flush
•   Dishwasher – 15 to 30 gallons per load

The commonly accepted value for water consumption, per household, is 4,500 gallon per month.
