The typical American uses 99 gallons of water a day for activities such as washing clothes, bathing, toilet-flushing and cooking. Water heating alone is easily the second or third largest energy expenditure in American homes. Efficient fixtures like low flow showerheads and water-saving habits like turning of the tap while brushing teeth are cost-effective ways to reduce water use and save money on utility bills. These and more tools featured at the breakfast can help everyone save the energy that goes to pump, treat and heat water, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and keep more water in our rivers, lakes, wetlands and underground aquifers.
HRWC’s new Saving Water Saves Energy Project is funded by the Masco Corporation Foundation.
