Got a Question?
Ask a Fresh Water Scientist

Why does saving/using less water help the environment?
Using water-saving techniques diverts less water from our rivers, bays, and estuaries, which helps keep the environment healthy and can save money, too!  Less demand on wastewater treatment, which converts used water into drinkable water, helps to reduce the amount of energy and chemicals used to treat, pump, and heat water.  These are all energy demands and can cause pollution of their own, so reducing those demands by using less water overall is great for the environment.
