VOLUNTARY WATER CONSERVATION NOTICE

The Palmerton Borough is asking its customers to voluntarily conserve water.

Water Saving Tips Inside the Home

– Turn the faucet off while brushing your teeth, rinse with a glass of water.

– When shaving, use a sink filled with rinse water.

– Take short showers instead of baths.

– Fill the sink with water to pre-rinse dishes before putting them in the dishwasher.

Water Recycling Tips

– Place a bucket in the shower to catch water that is wasted while you adjust your shower water

     temperature and recycle this water for plants or other watering uses.

– Other sources of water that can be recycled easily for other watering purposes include:

     – Pet dishes 

     – Flower vases

     – Leftover water from cooking or drinking

     – Dehumidifier water

Water Saving Tips Outside the Home

– Limit or eliminate watering grass or using irrigation

– Limit or eliminate washing vehicles

– Use a broom, not a hose, to clean driveways, steps, and sidewalks.

– Use mulch around shrubs and garden plants to reduce evaporation from the soil surface and cut

   down on weed growth.

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those

who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing

homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or

distributing copies by hand or mail.
