About Water

How You Can Save Water

Always try and remember to conserve your water as you will be helping the future generation, your grandchildren and their children will need that water that we are throwing away today.

Use your well as though it was your last drop!!!

Space your water activities over a 24 hour period. Example: one load of laundry, one shower. By spacing your water usage you are letting your well recover.

Tip one

Turn the water off while you brush your teeth and save over two gallons a minute.

Tip two

Fix dripping faucets and running toilets. A leaky faucet that drips at a rate of one drop per second can waste up to 2,700 gallons a year.

Tip three

Save water and money by choosing efficient shower heads, dishwashers, and other appliances. Look for the water sense labels.

Tip four

Only run your washing machine and dish washer when they are full.

Tip five

Dispose of chemicals properly at a hazardous waste drop off center- don’t pour them on the ground, into the sewer or down the drain.

Tip six

Avoid using pesticides or herbicides on your yard and garden-the chemicals can contaminate groundwater and streams and can also hurt kids and pets.

Tip seven

In the yard, use mulch to keep moisture from leaving the soil and minimize the need to water.

Tip eight

If you must water the lawn water in the early morning or evening and try to avoid watering on windy days. This will limit the amount of water that is evaporated by the sun or blown onto sidewalks and driveways.

Tip nine

Plant a rain garden to add beauty to your yard, while absorbing and filtering runoff. Water absorbed in a rain garden will filter pollution otherwise headed for streams.

Tip ten

Use a rain barrel to collect rain and help water your plants. Forty percent of the average homeowners water use is outdoors. Rain barrels reduce the stress on municipal water systems during the dry summer months.


If test results indicate water contamination, it is necessary to treat the well to improve the quality and safety of the drinking water.

Well owners have four primary treatment options;


Disinfection of the well to eliminate bacteria.


Point of use treatment, usually under the kitchen sink, to filter out contaminants from drinking water.


Point of entry treatment usually at the point where well water enters the plumbing system.


Multiple treatments for household water system, usually near the water storage tank, to filter multiple contaminants or improve water quality for all household uses.
