Think Before You Flush

Be thoughtful about what and when you flush.Many people unnecessarily flush tissue paper, cigarette butts, and other trash down the toilet, without thinking about the impact they are having on water resources.

Toilets are the largest contributor to residential indoor water use, accounting for up to 30% of use, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. 

If you want to save even more, you can consider installing a high-efficiency toilet. The EPA estimates that an individual can save approximately 4,000 gallons of water per year if they use high-efficiency toilets instead of traditional toilets. You can currently receive up to $80 in rebates for replacing your old toilet with a high-efficiency toilet. For more information on the available rebates and to apply, visit socalwatersmart.com.
