Make suggestions to your employer or school about ways to save water and money.

We’re more likely to notice leaky faucets indoors, but don’t forget to check outdoor faucets, pipes, and hoses.

Avoid recreational water toys that require a constant flow of water.


See a leak you can’t fix? Tell a parent, teacher, employer, or property manager, or call a handyman.


See how your water use stacks up to others by calculating your daily water use.


Play fun games while learning how to save water.


Grab a wrench and fix that leaky faucet. It’s simple, inexpensive, and you can save 500 litres a week.
