A family of four in the United States uses 400 gallons of water every day. That’s a lot of water – enough to take 10 baths! By being smarter about our water use, not only can we save water, energy, and money, we can help our rivers, too. When we use water more efficiently, we leave more water in rivers and streams to support fish and wildlife and recreation.
Here are 10 simple tips for saving water and helping rivers. Got a new tip to share? Let us know!
- Turn the water off while you brush your teeth and save over two gallons a minute.
- Fix dripping faucets and running toilets. A leaky faucet that drips at a rate of one drop per second can waste up to 2,700 gallons a year.
- Save water and money by choosing efficient showerheads, dishwashers, and other appliances. Look for the WaterSense label.
