1. Choose efficient plumbing fixtures
2. Go with a low-water landscape
Opt for drought-tolerant plants, then install high-efficiency irrigation systems, like drip emitters and low-flow sprinklers. Water according to need, rather than a timer, and only in the evening hours to keep evaporation to a minimum.
3. Adopt a water-wise lifestyle
Turning off the water while you brush your teeth, shave or wash dishes will save 2-3 gallons per minute, and shortening your shower by just two minutes can save 10 gallons!
