Water Conservation Indoors and Outdoors

In Maine we are fortunate to have an adequate supply of water for our everyday needs, but it is important to use this water wisely since our water supplies are valuable and the state’s water resources are limited. Conserving water helps us to avoid the considerable expense of developing new water supply sources, and ensure we have adequate supplies in storage for fire protection and other system demands. You can take simple measures to significantly reduce your water consumption and help save on your water bills.
