Water conservation paying off

City maintaining regular water service for residents
How you can help save water

The Animas River may have regained some of its clarity Saturday, but with heavy rainfall in the high country, government officials predicted another pulse of discolored water in the upper Cement Creek and Animas River.
Durango water users were being asked to reduce water usage with these tips:
Yard use: Sixty percent of the average household’s water use occurs outside. Discontinue outside watering until further notice from the city.
Shorten showers: Turn off the shower to lather up and back on to rinse off.
Put a brick on it: Displace water in older toilets with a brick to reduce the amount it takes to flush.
Check your load: Twenty-two percent of indoor home water use comes from doing laundry. Adjust your machine for proper load size.
In the kitchen: Wash dishes by hand or make sure to run a full load in the dishwasher.
