Join Jellystone Park in Conserving Water – Today and Beyond!

We invite you to be water-wise and support Jellystone Park™ in conserving our most important resource during the month of July and beyond.

Did you know…

  • Homes can waste more than 10% of water due to leaks.
  • Drips of 60 drops per minute = 192 gallons per month; 90 drops per minute = 310 gallons per month; a 3” stream = 1095 gallons per month. This increases your monthly water and sewer bill.
  • A running toilet could use up to 6,480 gallons of water a day.
  • A leaking flapper on a toilet can waste up to 200 gallons of water per day.
  • Americans use an average of 82 gallons of water per day at home.
  • The average family can waste 180 gallons per week, or 9,400 gallons of water annually, from household leaks. That’s equivalent to the amount of water needed to wash more than 300 loads of laundry.
  • Household leaks can waste nearly 900 billion gallons of water annually nationwide. That’s equal to the annual household water use of nearly 11 million homes.
  • Running the dishwasher only when it’s full can eliminate one load of dishes per week and save the average family nearly 320 gallons of water annually.
  • Turning off the tap while brushing your teeth can save 8 gallons of water per day, and turning the tap off while shaving can save 10 gallons of water per shave. Assuming you brush your teeth twice daily and shave 5 times per week, you could save nearly 5,700 gallons per year.
  • Up to 50% of the water we use is wasted due to inefficient watering methods and systems. Make sure to water your yard in the cool parts of the day and use a smart irrigation system to avoid overwatering.
  • Letting your faucet run for five minutes while washing dishes can waste 10 gallons of water and uses enough energy to power a 60-watt light bulb for 18 hours.
  • You can use at least 20 percent less water by installing water-efficient fixtures and appliances.
  • The average family can save 13,000 gallons of water and $130 in water costs per year by replacing all old, inefficient toilets in their home with WaterSense labeled models.
  • To reduce evaporation, water your lawn in the early morning or in the evening– and never on a windy day. When you water during the heat of the day or on a windy day, the water just evaporates. Watering during the day can actually harm your lawn by causing it to “burn”. Use a sprinkler that produces drops of water rather than a fine mist, to avoid evaporation. Turn soaker hoses so that the holes are on the bottom to avoid evaporation.
