dripping tap

We’re having a dry summer in Connecticut. There are many simple steps for you to conserve water at home, including:

- Taking shorter showers

- Running dishwashers and laundry machines with full loads

- Shutting off water while washing dishes, shaving, brushing teeth, and lathering up to wash hands, rather than running the water continuously

- Avoid washing vehicles, or power-washing homes and other buildings

- Not using water to clean sidewalks, driveways, and roads

- Reducing as much as possible the watering of lawns, recreational and athletic fields, gardens, or other landscape areas

- Not using public water to fill residential pools

- Promptly repairing any leaks
