Save Water Today

With at least 36 states expected to face serious water shortages by 2013, water conservation is an increasingly critical concern for our country.

“Small changes made at home can make a big difference when it comes to conserving our natural resources and protecting our planet for future generations.

A leak the size of a pinhole in a home water system can waste more than 4,000 gallons of water per month.

The amount of water leaked from U.S. homes could exceed more than 1 trillion gallons per year, according to the USEPA. That’s equivalent to the annual water use of Los Angeles, Chicago and Miami combined.

If every American home installed water-efficient fixtures and appliances, each year we could save about 2 billion gallons of water and $5 billion worth of energy.”
