A Seasonal Publication with Contributions
by the Drinking Water Professionals of York Water District
As custodians of the town’s water resources, we here at the York Water District strive to make water conservation a yearlong endeavor, for individual households and for the community as a whole. The colder temperatures and shorter hours of daylight result in most of us spending more time indoors, but this doesn’t mean we should relax our efforts to conserve water.
How You Can Help Conserve Water in Summer Months
York is a beautiful place to live year-round. It can be argued that the beauty of the area peaks during the summer months and warm summer temperatures are often complimented by gentle ocean breezes, making our community the destination for thousands of visitors looking to enjoy our local establishments, beaches and scenic beauty.
Every Drop Counts
We are lucky here in York to have a beautiful watershed area that provides us with both clean drinking water and recreational resources at the same time. We encourage everyone to use what you need, but at the same time always be mindful of waste.
Rain Barrels and Conservation
On average the Town of York receives 48.1” of rainfall per year. Did you know that you can calculate the amount of rainfall that can be collected by the size of your roof?
