Save On My Water Bill

According to a region-wide study completed by our drinking water supplier, Seattle Public Utilities, an average family uses about 64 gallons per person per day.  In a water efficient home, that number could be reduced to around 40 gallons per person per day.   Installing efficient fixtures and taking conservation actions can help reduce your water use year-round.  From the kitchen, to the bathroom, to the laundry room, changing your habits can save money on your water bill and help conserve a vital resource.  If you have an unusually high water bill, you may have a leak.
