When it comes to city water use, Utah uses about 293 gallons per person per day. This is the second highest amount in the nation. Of course, Utah is the second driest state in the nation. Because Utah is a desert we need to use our water wisely. Here are a few tips that you can use to save water.
By turning off the water while we brush our teeth or shave we can
save up to 10 gallons a day.
Stop using the toilet as a waste basket. Everytime you flush a
spider, facial tissue or some other small bit of trash down the
toilet, you waste 3-7 gallons of water.
Wash only full loads of laundry. Most washers use between 30 and
45 gallons per load. Thats a lot of water for three tee-shirts
Don't run the hose while washing the car. Soap down the car with
a pail of soapy water. Then use the hose to rinse it off.
