Save Some Water for Wildlife!

Did you know that the water we use in our homes comes from the water that feeds our rivers, streams and ponds? In the summer our water use doubles, leaving less water for fish and wildlife. Conserving water in the summer is especially important, since that’s when our streams and rivers have the least water to give.

The largest increase in summer water consumption comes from lawn watering. To water a one-acre lawn with just 1” of water consumes 26,000 gallons – more than it takes to fill a standard 16’x32’ swimming pool!

Choosing water-saving landscaping and watering less can keep more water available for wildlife.

The WaterSmart Program is a partnership with the NSRWA and 11 towns on the South Shore; Duxbury, Hanover, Hingham, Hull, Kingston, Marshfield, Norwell, Pembroke, Rockland, Scituate, and Weymouth, which provides education to school children and adults on water conservation in their homes, businesses and towns.
