Water is always precious, but it’s especially important to conserve water during a drought.
It’s really easy to stop wasting water at home. You can start by taking short showers instead of a bath. A four minute shower uses about 8 gallons of water, while a full bath uses about 50 gallons. If you must bathe, fill bathtub only half full. This will save 18 to 25 gallons of water per bath.
