A leaky toilet can waste as much as 200 gallons of water a day. A common reason toilets leak is that the toilet flapper has become worn and no longer seals closed once the toilet has filled.
Almost 40% of total residential water consumption is from water used for landscape irrigation and swimming pools
Water lawns during the early morning hours or evening when temperatures and wind speed are the lowest. This reduces the losses from evaporation.
Water your lawn only when it needs it. If you step on the grass and it springs back up when you move, it doesn't need water. If it stays flat, it does need water.
Inside the home, water use is fairly evenly distributed among appliances, but nearly 30% is flushed down the toilet. A typical household of four uses 400 gallons of water per day. Clothes washing generally accounts for about 25-30%, followed by showers around 20-25%, and faucet use (washing dishes, brushing teeth, etc) is approximately 20%.
If you have a pool, keep the water level a bit lower to minimize splashing, and use a cover if possible to slow evaporation. An average-sized pool can lose about 1,000 gallons of water per month if left uncovered.
If you water your grass and trees more heavily, but less often, this saves water while building stronger roots making your lawn and landscaping more drought-tolerant. Agronomists recommend water lawns so that they received 1-1.5 inches of water per week.
One of the easiest and most efficient ways to conserve water used for landscape irrigation is by replacing traditional sprinkler system controllers with a controller that has a rain sensor or weather-based controller. You will save water (and money!) by not watering when it rains.

Southside Place Fire Department is not equipped to fill fire extinguishers at this time. However, you can find local fire extinguisher businesses in the yellow pages to refill them.
Firefighters ventilate smoke, superheated, poisonous, or explosive gases for safety and visibility. This allows firefighters to get inside the building to find and extinguish the fire, thereby reducing property damage. This also reduces the chance of a possible dangerous explosion. The environment inside a burning building is not like the movies portray it. Often firefighters cannot see their hands in front of their faces. They crawl to try and remain below smoke and heat and feel their way through the hostile environment. Reducing the smoke in the building allows more efficient rescue and extinguishing of the fire.
