Water Conservation

Wise use of water is a good idea for many reasons. On a grand scale, it protects our environment and preserves this precious natural resource. On a personal level, it saves you money by reducing your water bill. During the summer when water use increases, LWS can deliver 80-90 million gallons a day. When water use approaches or exceeds this level, individual water conservation decisions become important. As a community, water conservation will lengthen the life of Lincoln's water delivery system because less stress is placed on the system.

Join the Lincoln Water Conservation Task Force in making Lincoln a water-wise community.

Saving Water Outdoors

About half the water we consume during the summer is used outdoors. These water-saving tips can help you save money and protect our water supply.

Saving Water Indoors

We use water in our homes year-round, so even small adjustments—like checking for leaks or using efficient fixtures—can add up to big savings.
