Though wise use of water in summer is essential, conservation needs to become a year-round habit. Because we take water for granted, much of the water we use inside our homes is wasted. On average, a Lincoln family of four uses 300 to 400 gallons of water each day.
There are good reasons why we should conserve water year-round. By conserving water, you will also conserve energy — energy used to heat water and run appliances that use water. Your wastewater bill is calculated on the average amount of water usage for domestic purposes during the winter. So, by conserving water, you will reduce your energy, water and wastewater bills.
