Have any New Years resolutions that include water savings this year?
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) WaterSense program created “We’re for Water” as a national campaign to educate consumers about water-saving behaviors and WaterSense labeled products.
The WaterSense label makes it easy to identify products that use less water and perform as well as, or better, than standard models. Whether by replacing an inefficient fixture with a WaterSense labeled product or adopting water-efficient behaviors, we can all take action to save water for future generations.
Join thousands of your neighbors in We’re for Water. Make simple changes at home to save water and energy. Go to epa.gov/watersense to take the I’m for Water pledge.
After taking the pledge, download the 2024 monthly resolution checklist to stay on track all year. By taking one or two simple steps each month, it’s easy to do your part to protect our water for future use.
Two easy actions to do now, are turning off the irrigation system during winter months and checking toilets to reveal any silent leaks.
To check the toilet, add a few drops of food coloring to the toilet tank and wait 10 minutes before flushing. If dye appears in the toilet bowl, your toilet has a leak. If you find a leak, visit www.epa.gov/watersense/fixaleak for do-it-yourself repair tips or contact a plumbing professional.
You can also get money back when purchasing WaterSense labeled products. The City of Round Rock’s Water Conservation Program offer rebates on WaterSense labeled outdoor and indoor water fixtures such as toilets and sprinkler system upgrades. Visit roundrocktexas.gov/rebates for more detailed rebate information.
