the conservation of water resources.
to make efficient use of the water that you need to ensure future supplies for others.
Living over the Spokane Valley Rathdrum Prairie Aquifer can make it hard to see the benefits of water conservation. After all, the region has no watering restrictions and it seems like there will always be enough water. But the truth is that water conservation saves a lot more than just water! Besides the added benefit of ensuring future water supplies, using less water saves energy, reduces pollution, and saves you money.
- Shorter showers save water and the energy it takes to heat the water.
- Running the dishwasher and washing machine only when you have a full load also saves energy and reduces your electric bill.
- Using less water means that your utility has to use less power pumping water and reduces wear and tear on the infrastructure; and
- Lowering the amount of water going down the drain means less sewage for the treatment plants to clean and saves on your sewer bill.
