If you are looking to maintain a green lifestyle, conserving water is key. Here are a few tips for water conservation in Overland Park.

  • Put food coloring in your toilet tank. Don’t flush it for a while, so make sure you’ve got access to another toilet. If you see the coloring in your toilet bowl, you’ll know you have a leak and need to get it repaired.
  • Wash your fruits and vegetables in a pan instead of under the tap. You’ll use a lot less water this way.
  • A leaky faucet can use up to 140 gallons of water a week. If you can grab a wrench and fix it yourself, you can solve the problem right away. otherwise tell a maintenance supervisor right away!
