Save Water, Save Money!
Here are some helpful summer tips:
- Cleaning your driveway with a garden hose wastes water. When cleaning your driveway or sidewalk, sweep away dirt with a broom. Rain will do the rest!
- Take your car to a commercial car wash! They may use up to 50% less water than washing your vehicle in your driveway. They also prevent chemicals and pollutants from going into our storm sewers.
- If you must wash your car at home, use a bucket and sponge. This can save about 300 litres of water per wash. That's enough water to do two full loads of laundry!
