In response to the Washington State Department of Health Water Use Efficiency Rule, the city of Pullman offers education and devices to help residents conserve our water resources.

According to the American Water Works Association, in the typical house, if the toilets were manufactured before 1994, they probably consume more than 26 percent of a family’s indoor water. Washing clothes uses about 21 percent, showers about 16 percent, faucets nearly 16 percent and leaks more than 13 percent.

To help and encourage residents to conserve water, the city offers to water customers various water-saving devices such as low-flow shower heads, faucet aerators, etc.
