Fresh, clean drinking water – the Bay Area needs more potable water every day. Conserving local fresh water is imperative for our future.

In our homes, getting fresh water is as easy as breathing; we just turn on the taps. But using water isn’t only about emptying and filling a drinking glass, a bath or a cooking pot.

It takes energy to create potable water, to move it, clean it, pump it, store it and to heat hot water. Californians use 20% of household energy just to manage water: “Running the hot water faucet for 5 minutes uses [as much] energy as burning a 60-watt bulb for 14 hours.” (U.S. EPA).

Small actions matter for water conservation. Here's Pipe Spy’s “water action short list”:

  • Fix every drip in the house.
  • Check that toilet tank water isn’t spilling into the bowl.
  • Water your garden and lawn for the minimum time (or plant a dry garden!).
  • Use a sink tub of warm water for dish washing/rinsing.
  • Use cold water for laundry.
  • Install a low-flow shower head.
