"Drip. Drip. Drip." Water is a precious resource - help the County not waste it! Every small water leak equals wasting almost 2,000 gallons of water annually. Whether on the job or at home, conserving water not only saves money; it also protects the environment. Behind the scenes, the County has installed a weather station at the GSA Service Building that ensures we only water when necessary, reducing water use by 15 percent (enough water to fill 125 average size swimming pools). Employees can do their part to save water by taking a moment to report leaks. Below are some other easy water and money saving tips that can make a big difference at home and the office.
Report That Leak
One of the easiest ways to help the County save water and lower our water bill is by reporting leaky faucets and toilets. Even a small water leak wastes thousands of liters over a year. You can do your part by reporting water leaks to your facilities management contact.
Save Water. Save Energy.
One of the easiest ways to save water and lower your water bill is by repairing leaky faucets and toilets. Even a small leak wastes gallons of water. At work, encourage staff to report leaks, and then have the repairs done quickly. To make it easier for staff, post signs in kitchens and bathrooms that give maintenance or housekeeping contact information.
