Thanks for conserving water, town says

Continue reading below

The town’s Water Department and Conservation Commission are thanking residents for their efforts in conserving drinking water, citing figures from a recent Globe article that showed the town’s average daily use of water is below state recommendations, and almost half that of Weston, a town with fewer people. In addition, officials are offering several tips on how residents can continue to conserve and save on their water bills. Tips include turning off the tap while brushing teeth or shaving to save 1 to 2 gallons per minute; taking shorter showers, to save 2 to 4 gallons; fixing leaking sinks; and watering lawns and gardens in the early morning or late in the evening to avoid the evaporation loss during daytime sunshine. More information is available at the Water Department’s page on the town website, www.hopkintonma.gov.
