Why Conserve Water?
While fresh water is renewable resources, the world's supply of clean, usable water is decreasing faster than it can be replaced.
Available for Human Consumption
Although over 70% of the earth's surface is water, 97% of that water is saline (salt water), leaving a mere 3% for fresh water.
Only 1% of all water is fit for human consumption!
Of that 3%, over 2/3 is frozen in glaciers and the polar ice caps, leaving less than 1% readily available for human consumption.
Save Money and Water with Low-Flow Fixtures and Appliances
An average US family uses 127,009 gallons of water per year! Low-flow appliances and fixtures can help reduce that number.
