Nothing left to chew on

Mandatory Water Conservation measures in effect for the City of Houston.  Basically it states to stop watering your grass and quit wasting water.

Ways to conserve water:

  • Keep showers under five minutes
  • Turn water off while brushing your teeth
  • Wash only full loads of dishes or clothes
  • Replace older model showerheads and faucet aerators with new low-flow models and install low water use toilets
  • Inspect toilets for silent leaks by putting food coloring in the toilet tank. If colored water leaks into the toilet bowl before flushing, water is being lost due to a worn flapper
  • Refrain from washing any vehicle or motorbike unless the dirt poses a driving hazard
  • Refrain from washing down any sidewalk, walkway, driveway, parking lot or any other hard-surfaced area
  • Refrain from filling, refilling or adding water to any indoor or outdoor swimming pool, spa or whirlpool.
