Ways to Conserve
The Southeast is blessed with natural water resources. But our region now faces a significant environmental and economic challenge: a dwindling water supply. Change is a necessity. Thankfully, water conservation can be beneficial to your pocketbook as well as to the environment. Rainwater harvesting, greywater recycling, and stormwater retention are all practical solutions to the problem.
- Capture natural rainwater for use in non-potable areas such as pools, car washes, irrigation, toilet flushing, clothes washing, and more.
- Grow healthier plants, grasses, and trees that thrive on fresh rainwater, which is free of chlorine and other harmful chemicals.
- Insure valuable landscaping investments when faced with watering restrictions during times of drought.
- Reduce your carbon footprint by eliminating the energy consumption associated with the treatment and transport of water.
- Preserve freshwater resources by reducing soil erosion from stormwater and keeping sediment and chemicals out of our rivers and streams.
- Solve erosion problems on your own property by retaining stormwater.
- Save money on rising water and sewer bills.
- Invest in the value of your home with green building products and systems.
