EPWater rolls out new ‘how to’ videos on water conservation

For many El Pasoans, daily life now requires work, dine-in, exercise and even school to be done from home. More often than not, that also means more do-it-yourself home improvement projects.

To that end, officials with El Paso Water wants residents to conserve water, while saving money at the same time by performing simple upgrades around their homes.

“Saving water at home can be as easy as finding and fixing a leak, or swapping out old showerheads with water efficient ones, said Conservation Manager Anai Padilla. “You may feel like you are using more water because you are spending more time at home, but there are still ways to conserve.”

EPWater created the “How to Conserve Water” video series to demonstrate how simple changes around your home can make a huge difference in water conservation.

Officials share that educating the community is a key component of the utility’s conservation program and has contributed to the city’s decrease of per-person water consumption by 35 percent since 1991, the year our conservation ordinance was adopted.

“We wanted to create an easy to use tool to empower our customers to save water in their homes. The videos are short and to the point and can be viewed on any device,” said Communications and Marketing Manager Christina Montoya-Halter.

The videos range from learning how to find a hidden leak in your home to finding out when your lawn needs more water. Most of the tools needed can be found around your house.

A leaky faucet that drips once every second can waste more than 1,000 gallons every year.
