A little bit of conservation every day can add up to a lot of savings.

Using just a little less water every day can add up pretty quickly. The average family can save over 3,000 gallons of water per year by installing EPA Water Sense shower heads that use less than 2 gallons of water per minute. That cuts down on electricity use as well.

According to the EPA's website:

The average family could save 2,900 gallons per year by installing WaterSense labeled showerheads. Since these water savings will reduce demands on water heaters, they will also save energy. In fact, the average family could save more than 370 kilowatt hours of electricity annually, enough to power a house for 13 days.

The City of Greeley is holding a shower head exchange on Saturday August 9, 2014 at 902 7th Avenue during the Farmers’ Market. Bring your bill from the City of Greeley Water & Sewer Department and the shower heads you wish to replace.
