Conserving water is cost-effective, environmentally friendly and a great way to help preserve the earth’s most precious resource. Westbury Water consumers are encouraged to adopt conservation habits for inside the home as well as outdoors.

The following are a few simple household tips that can help save water:
1. Turn off the water while brushing your teeth.
2. Keep your shower under five minutes.
3. Wash full loads of laundry instead of small loads.
4. Set your dishwasher to a short cycle instead of a long cycle.
5. Install a water conservation device in your toilet, such as a toilet dam.

Quick Water Conservation Facts
1. Use a broom instead of a hose to clean sidewalks and driveways.
2. Make sure sprinklers irrigate the lawn – not the side of the house, street or sidewalk.
3. Thaw frozen foods in the refrigerator instead of using running water.
4. Avoid unnecessary evaporation by covering pools and hot tubs.
5. Place a pitcher of water in the refrigerator instead of running tap water for a cool drink.
6. To avoid frozen pipes in the winter, drain underground sprinkler systems and outdoor hoses, insulate pipes located in poorly heated areas and make sure the cover on the water meter is tightly secured.
7. Plant flowers, trees and bushes that can prosper with little water such as forsythia bushes, lilacs, pine trees and African daises.
8. Do it yourself! Fixing a leaky toilet could save 500 gallons of water a month as well as the cost of hiring a plumber.
9. Install spray nozzles on all outdoor hoses.
