Run dishwashers and clothes washers only when they are full. 
If you have a water-saver cycle, 
use it.
Use low-flow showerheads and faucet aerators to reduce the flow
of water without reducing pressure. 
Regularly check your toilet, faucets, and pipes for leaks. If you find a leak, have it fixed as soon as possible. 

Insulate pipes in unheated areas to prevent them from freezing. If pipes run through cabinets, open the doors to allow warmer room temps to flow in.
When temperatures stay below freezing, allow a small trickle of water to run to help keep pipes from freezing. 
Check for leaks after the first thaw by having a plumber walk your property to inspect water lines.

If you’re experiencing financial hardship, we offer a variety of programs to help customers get through those tough times.
