Reduce Water Waste with these Water Conservation Tips

Ways to Reduce Water WasteThough most of the Earth’s surface is covered with water, less than one percent of it is suitable for use by humans. This fact underscores the need to preserve what is a valuable and limited resource. The average American household uses 260 gallons of this precious commodity on a daily basis and much of it goes to waste, largely through waiting for water to heat up for showers and baths. Note that the water itself is not the only thing going to waste; a lot of energy is also used in the delivery of water to communities.
