An American household uses more than 94,000 gallons of fresh water annually, which is equivalent of filling 2 1/2 Olympic-sized swimming pools.
How to reduce water usage?
Check for leaky faucets and install more efficient water fixtures.
Water you lawn in the morning, as much as 30 percent of water can lost due to evaporation if you water midday. When you do water, give your garden a deep soaking of water instead of frequent sprinkles to avoid quick evaporation.
Check your sprinklers for leaking heads and valves. Make sure they cover your lawn and garden, not the sidewalk.
