Getting the Most from our Most Basic Resource
Whether it is conserving water in fixtures and appliances, collecting and using rainwater to water the garden, or planning a garden to use less water, there are lots of ways to use water wisely. While it seems over-abundant in the Northwest for many months of the year, the dry season coincides with peak outdoor water use. Securing water resources, protecting them from contamination, treating and distributing water and collecting and treating sewage are huge costs that are covered by your taxes as well as your utility fees. We all save when we use this precious resource efficiently.

Monthly Savings
Your water and, if applicable, your sewer bill are based on metered water use, so every gallon you conserve saves money. Hot water has the further cost of heating, so hot water savings means a smaller energy bill.

Contentment
You can relax knowing that you are helping protect a vital resource for a future generations.
