Voluntary Water Conservation Needed

After a rapid snowmelt this spring, little to no rainfall this summer, and above-average water consumption, our region’s water reservoirs are lower than usual.

In response, Highlands Utility District joins water purveyors throughout our region to request our customers cooperation with voluntary water conservation.

Voluntary Water Conservation Meter

Here are three ways you can do this around the home:

  1. Shorten your shower (every minute = 2 gallons), and turn off the faucet while shaving or brushing your teeth.

  2. Flush less often if possible, and check to make sure you don’t have a leaky toilet… if you hear your toilet occasionally hissing or refilling, this could be an indicator of a leak. Fixing the problem is usually as simple as replacing the flapper inside your toilet tank.

  3. Use a broom instead of a hose to do outside fall clean up.
