Water ConservationNeed for Water Conservation
Water conservation is an important factor in a water utility's day-to-day operations. While the incentive to conserve water is not strictly limited to economic or engineering considerations, it can be instrumental in extending inadequate water supply, reducing energy consumption, compensating for service deficiencies, reducing wastewater flows, and minimizing the demands of rapid population growth. Institutional, legal, environmental and political parameters affect the degree of water conservation attainable.
Conservation can be difficult but being aware of steps to conserve water can be empowering. Simple steps such as not letting the faucet run while brushing one’s teeth or making sure that there is no water leaks can add up to alot of water saving and help our community to continue its growth.
