Don't Be a Water Hog

Imagine stepping back in time to the days when people had to fetch water from a nearby stream. How much water do you think you would use in a day? How much do you think you would waste?

Albe and Marle once calculated that a family of four uses 110,000 gallons of water a year. That's a whopping 300 gallons a day!

As communities grow, more water must be drawn from aquifers, or groundwater. Unless this water is replaced at the same rate it is withdrawn, our water supply is threatened.

Using less water saves a precious natural resource.

Caretaker's Checklist

As a nation, we Americans dump 16 tons of sewage into our waters every minute of every day. Yet, without major inconvenience or expense, each household could save 15 to 20 percent of the water
it currently uses.
