Take The Pledge!

By taking The Pledge [PDF], you and your family agree to conserve water, use water more efficiently, and make simple repairs and retrofits. It's easy to do and makes sense.

Remember, We're in This Together!

Save Water, Save Money

The average household spends as much as $500 per year on its water and sewer bill. By making just a few simple changes to use water more efficiently, you could save about $170 per year. If all U.S. households installed water-efficient appliances, the country would save more than 3 trillion gallons of water and more than $18 billion dollars per year!

Save Water, Save Energy

It takes a considerable amount of energy to deliver and treat the water you use every day. Water supply and treatment facilities across the US, like the Municipal system here in Gillette, consume about 56 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year—enough electricity to power more than 5 million homes for an entire year. For example, letting your faucet run for five minutes uses about as much energy as letting a 60-watt light bulb run for 14 hours.

If 1 percent of American homes replaced their older, inefficient toilets with WaterSense labeled models, the country would save more than 38 million kWh of electricity—enough to supply more than 43,000 household’s electricity for one month— Or about four months worth of for all the households in Gillette!
