Did you know?
- Approximately 400 billion gallons of water are used in the United States per day. American residents use about 100 gallons of water per day. At 50 gallons per day, residential Europeans use about of the water that residential Americans use. And residents of sub-Saharan Africa use only 2-5 gallons per day.
- The average faucet flows at a rate of 2 gallons per minute. You can save up to four gallons of water every morning by turning off the faucet while you brush your teeth.
- A running toilet can waste up to 200 gallons of water per day.
- At 1 drip per second, a faucet can leak 3,000 gallons per year.
- Nearly one-half of the water used by Americans is used for thermoelectric power generation.
That’s why Greeley needs to do our part to conserve water and energy. Be a part of the National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation and make your pledge to reduce your water use at www.mywaterpledge.com. If Greeley has the highest percentage of participating residents taking the pledge, like we did in 2012, we will all be entered to win great prizes-like a Toyota Prius Plug-in, Home Improvement Gift cards, Toro Smart Irrigation Controllers, and more. We are all in this together.
