Much of California is experiencing an extreme drought. Here are six simple ways you can help conserve water.
Tip 1: Turn off lawn irrigation. Only water distressed plants.
Tip 2: Did you know the average shower time is 10 minutes? Reduce your shower time by 50 percent to save water.
Tip 3: Turn off the sink faucet when brushing your teeth.
Tip 4: Turn off the shower when lathering up.
