Conservation provides many benefits. Beyond being mindful of one of our more precious resources, it helps reduce our energy usage because less pumping is required, and it puts less of a demand on our sewer and wastewater infrastructure, meaning less maintenance is required, which helps to keep rates low. Think of it…one of the most valuable water sources we collectively have is the water that is wasted, the water that goes down the drain. Everyone’s conservation efforts are crucial to limiting water and sewer rate increases.
Thanks to the efforts of our residents, over the past five years, there has been a drop in average daily water usage from 329 gallons per person per day down to less than 240 gallons per person per day.
