CONSERVATION, DOING YOUR PART EVEN WHEN OTHER DO NOT


How much water do you use in a day? A gallon? Ten gallons? Few people know how much they use. The amount is likely to be as much as 60 gallons per person per day. This ligure has tripled since 1901

Imagine what it would be like to turn on the tap and find nothing there. People in some parts of the country know this can happen. They are learning how to conserve water. They know that water is a limited resource.

Today, water shortages are a local or regional problem. Someday they may be a national problem. It is wise to learn now how to conserve nature's precious supply of fresh water.

This Water Management Checklist is designed to help you see how effectively you are using water, and to alert you to ways to save it.


WATER MANAGEMENT

Water is something most people take for granted, whether it's for bathing, dishwashing, laundry or brushing teeth. But water is a necessary resource that may at times be limitesd.

One of the best ways of wasting water is a leaky faucet, which at a rate of only one drop per second, adds up to nearly 2,500 gallons per year. That's enough water for 160 full cycles in an automatic dishwasher.

To save water and dollars use water wisely. Don't let the water run continuously while shaving or rinsing dishes. Instead close the drain or fill a pan with water for rinsing. And take quick showers instead of baths, since full bath tubs can use up to twice as much water.

For more information on managing your water wisely, contact your local county Agricultural Extension Office.

As you read this list, check the steps you have already taken to conserve water. Note what you still need to do to become a better manager of water resources.
