Turn off the faucet when brushing your teeth and take showers instead of baths. Taking a bath uses 2.5 times more water than a 3 minute shower on average. Even a dripping faucet wastes a great deal of valuable water. 10 drips per minute from a leaking faucet wastes approximately 793 gallons of water a year. That is over 4 times the amount each American drinks in a year. WOW...... Please be aware of the water you use and waste.
