Water consumption

Tips to reduce water consumption in households

  • Starting a compost pile as an alternate method of disposing of food waste instead of using a garbage disposal reduces water requirement.
  • Water usage should be minimized while washing dishes by hand.
  • Avoid flushing the toilet unnecessarily.
  • Lawns and other landscape features should be watered using waste water. Besides cutting down on water requirements, this also recharges the ground water.
  • Watering lawns during the early morning hours when temperature and wind speed are the lowest reduces loss due to evaporation.
  • Faulty faucets should be repaired immediately.
  • Planting local shrubs and trees while landscaping reduces water required for landscaping.
  • Harvesting rainwater for day to day use as well as to recharge ground water is a good measure to reduce dependency on the municipal water supply while conserving water at the same time.
