Water Conservation

When you use less water, you can:

  • Save money.
  • Help the environment.
  • Decrease the demand on our drinking water resources.

The first step: make sure your water system doesn’t have a leak. See our Water Leak Detection page for more.

Quickly and easily reduce your water consumption. Install low-flow fixtures and high-efficiency appliances for your toilet, shower and faucet. The Capital Regional District (CRD) has more information on how you can use less water at home and in your business.
