We all know about the current drought in California. With summer just around the corner, we still need to be conscious of our water use even on hot days.
Since June 1, 2015, Governor Jerry Brown has issued an executive order requiring a 25% cutback. Even if the landlord pays the water bill, this is every Californian’s problem.
Here are some tips to do your part in conserving water:
Check your home for leaky or dripping faucets
Check for running toilets
Check for any leaking pipes throughout your home
Wait to use of the dishwasher and washing machine until it is a full load
Take a shower instead of baths. Showers use much less water.
Turn off the faucet while brushing teeth or soaping dishes
Use excess water to water plants or to clean
