  7. 7. <ul><li>Never put water down the drain when there may be another use for it such as watering a plant or garden, or cleaning. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Verify that your home is leak-free, because many homes have hidden water leaks. Read your water meter before and after a two-hour period when no water is being used. If the meter does not read exactly the same, there is a leak. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>Repair dripping faucets by replacing washers. If your faucet is dripping at the rate of one drop per second, you can expect to waste 2,700 gallons per year which will add to the cost of water and sewer utilities, or strain your septic system. </li></ul>

  16. 16. <ul><li>As our population grows, more and more people are using up this limited resource. Therefore, it is important that we use our water wisely and NOT WASTE IT! </li></ul>
