Use this chart to determine your water usage the next time that you get your water bill.
Simply look up the total amount of water used (in thousands of gallons) and compare it to the number of occupants in your household. You might be surprised at how much (or little) water you actually use!
Often times, high water bills are because of leaks around the house, such as older toilets, and dripping faucets and showerheads. It all adds up!
If you think that your water bill is too high, check around your house for leaks.
For suggestions on how to check and repair leaks – and many other ways to conserve water – visit the Sharon Water Conservation Program’s website at www.sharonwater.com.
