It’s Water-Wise Wednesday with Frannie the Fish {Ways to Protect and Conserve Groundwater – Don't Let It Run}

This week in The Groundwater Foundation's Top 10 List of Ways to Protect and Conserve groundwater at home's series, Frannie will be discussing some easy ways to conserve water every day at home!

This week's theme is Don't Let It Run!  Throughout every day we all use the faucet many times - when we brush our teeth, wash our hands, get a drink of water, and for many other activities.  Making sure to shut off the faucet when you are not using it is a very simple way to cut down on your water use.

Frannie makes sure to shut the faucet off while she brushes her teeth!

 Frannie also washes her fruits and vegetables in a large bowl instead of running the faucet.

Another simple action Frannie takes to cut down on her run time is by keeping a pitcher of water in the refrigerator instead of running the tap until the water is cold.
