Water Conservation

As a member of the Partnership for Water Conservation, Valley Water District is working to promote water conservation. Water is a precious, finite resource. Demands on it are ever increasing. Conserving water year round helps ensure there’s enough water for all the needs in the Puget Sound region – for our communities, businesses and environment.

 Water is a shared resource. Please use it wisely. 

Look to the future. The actions you take today help ensure an adequate supply of clean drinking water for your children and future generations.

Be a good steward. Conserving water protects the beauty of our natural environment and preserves the integrity of our ecosystems.

Support the economy. Using water wisely at work and at home ensures water for business needs.

Save money. You may lower your water and energy bills by using water with care, and purchasing water-efficient devises and appliances.

It starts with you. For water conservation tips go to: Partners4Water.org Also check out all the Fun Water Saving Links we have found for you!

Check for Toilet Leaks

The most common source of household water leaks is the toilet

..and since the toilet is also the largest user of household water, you will save water and money by repairing a leaking toilet as soon as possible.

Follow these easy steps to test your toilet today.

  1. Carefully lift the lid on the toilet tank (behind the toilet bowl) and place a few drops of food coloring in the water.
  2. Do not flush the toilet for at least 15 minutes.
  3. If any of the dye shows up in the bowl before flushing, you likely have a bad flapper and you are losing a significant amount of water between flushes.

To learn about the care and repair of toilets, check into an online class at Toiletology 101. Be amazed at how easy and expensive this do-it-yourself project really is.

Fix Leaky Faucets

Don't ignore leaks in your sink and bathtub faucets.

Dripping faucets can usually be repaired by replacing the rubber “O-ring” or washer inside the valve.

Is Your Toilet Water-Smart?

The toilet is the largest water user in your home.

If your home was built before 1992 and the toilet has never been replaced, it is likely that you do not have a water efficient 1.6 gallon per flush toilet.

Check out the cost of a replacement toilet at your local home improvement store.

You might be surprised to find this is one project that won't break the bank and will save you money in your water bill.

Turn Off the Water

DO YOUR PART TO BE WATER-SMART

Avoid letting the water run when brushing teeth, washing dishes or shaving.

Install faucet aerators that use one gallon per minute or less. Come in to the District office to get one for FREE.

Store drinking water in the refrigerator rather than letting the tap run while you are waiting for cool water to flow.

To avoid letting water run while it heats up, consider installing an instant water heater at your kitchen sink. This will also reduce water-heating costs for your household.
