Changing What You Use

• Replace shower heads and faucet aerators with water efficient models.

• Use a water-filled milk jug or plastic bottle in your toilet tank to displace water; this allows your toilet to operate using less water.

• Choose nonphosphate or low phosphate detergents. High phosphate levels in lakes and streams can kill fish and other wildlife.

• Use a broom instead of water to clean your driveway or garage. Do not sweep debris into the street or storm sewer.

• Put a spray nozzle on the end of your hose for car washing and plant watering to prevent the hose from continually releasing water and to control the amount of water used.

• Use native plants in your garden that require less water.

• Use cat litter or sand instead of salt on icy walks. Salt pollutes water and kills plants.

Changing What You Do

• Do not let the water run while brushing your teeth or washing your face (you can save up to 5 gallons).

• Do not leave the water running if you wash dishes by hand.

• Rinse all your dishes at once by using a dishrack placed in the sink.

• Only run your dishwasher and washing machine when they are full.

• Do not open fire hydrants on hot summer days because water needed to fight a fire will not be available in an emergency.

• Do not throw in the trash, pour down the drain, or dump on the ground paint, antifreeze, motor oil, and other household hazardous wastes, because they can migrate to your water source.

• Dispose of tissues, dead insects, and other waste in a trash can rather than a toilet.

• Plant native plants instead of traditional lawn grass to avoid the use of herbicides, pesticides, fertilizers.

• Do not dump used motor oil on the ground or into sewers; throwing motor oil in the trash is illegal. Recycling centers and many service stations accept used motor oil for recycling.

Improving Your Housekeeping

• Fix leaks by replacing faucet washers and toilet flappers as needed. A slow drip or leak can easily waste more than 100 gallons of water a week, which leads to an unnecessarily high water bill.

• Put all litter in trash cans so it does not get washed into the storm sewers.

• Clean up waste products while walking your pets.

Educating Yourself and Others

• Educate your community about the effects of dumping waste, such as pesticides, down drains and into waterways.

• Encourage your neighbors, family, and friends to install low flow water fixtures and to practice water conservation.

 

IV. Speaking Practice.

Speak about the ways of protecting the water against contamination and possible ways of water waste reduction.

2. Discuss the text “Categories of Water Use” with your partner.
