Smart Water Use

We are constantly looking for ways to ensure water is available for future generations. Part of that commitment includes helping our customers understand what they can do to help. We do that in a variety of ways: in customer bills, in our newsletters, and here on our website.


Water Use Calculator

To use less water, it’s helpful to know how much you’re using and where. Liberty is a member of the Alliance for Water Efficiency.

Check out their online water calculator that allows you to input water use information specific to your household and offers tips on where you can save water and energy based on that data.

We want to help you save. A few small steps could add up to big savings.

Look for leaks - Leaks are sneaky and can waste a whole lot of water over a short period of time, adding up to wasted money. Check faucets, toilets, and showerheads to see if there is opportunity for you to save. 

Invest in smart tools - Smart thermostats, smart appliances, and smart irrigation controllers all use technology to help you save.

Look for labels - When buying appliances, water heaters, electronics, light bulbs, toilets, faucet, shower heads, and more, look for ENERGY STAR® and WaterSense labels. Items with these labels are certified by the EPA to use less and can save you significant money on your utility bills.

Did You Know?

Did you know that a running toilet can waste up to 200 gallons of water a day?! Leaks are sneaky and can waste a whole lot of water over a short period of time, adding up to a lot of wasted money.

Below are some fixes to common leaks around the house. If these simple fixes do not work, or you are not comfortable fixing them yourself, call a trusted handyman or licensed plumber to get the job done.





    • Change landscaping irrigation timers with the seasons.
    • Don’t drowned your plants! Shut off automatic watering systems when it rains.
    • Use faucet aerators that are 1.5 GPM or lower.
    • Skip your next watering cycle after a rain event. Your plants will thank you.
    • Reduce evaporation by mulching your landscaping and potted plants.
    • Check hoses, connectors and spigots regularly. Replace them when necessary.
    • Check for leaks around the house once a month.
    • Only do full loads of dishes when running the dishwasher.
    • Reuse clean household water by watering potted plants with it.
    • Wash produce in a pan instead of under running water.
    • Take shorter showers.
    • Fill the sink when washing dishes instead of letting the water run.
    • Turn the water off when you’re not actively using it.
    • Only fill the bath tub up a third of the way.
    • Do full loads of laundry or set the water level to the correct size of the load
