Water Price Hike!

After the following increase in transport fares and oil products, we are yet to prepare for another increase - water rate.

According to news, the rate increase will take effect this month. And because of that unavoidable increase, we should be conscious of our water usage.
Here are some tips on how to conserve water:

•Dont let the water run while washing dishes or when doing your laundry.

•Check faucets and toilets for leaks.

•Collect the water you used from washing dishes and clothes, then reuse it to water the plants or to clean the driveway.

•When taking a bath, use a pale and water dipper instead of the shower. Or just take shorter showers.

•Teach your kids to use water wisely and to turn off the faucet after using.

•When washing dishes by hand, use a basin to rinse the dishes.

•Dont let the water run when washing your hands or brushing your teeth.

•Water your lawn only when needed.

These are just simple ways but it will help a lot in lowering down our water costs.


  1. All good pieces of advice.

    Living here in Oregon, there is so much water that I don't hear much about conserving. But the lessons of my time in California have stayed with me. All of the lessons you have listed here.

    I try to instill in my daughters the notion that, even in times of plenty?

    It is disrespectful to this earth to be wasteful.

    Thank you for the reminder.
