Save Water…Every Drop Counts!

Water is a limited resource that everyone needs to survive. While New Jersey is considered a 'water-rich' state because it receives about 46 inches of rainfall a year, each resident uses about 70 gallons of water per day. During the growing season (April–October), outdoor water use can increase this use to 155 gallons per day per person.

This means that over 9 million people living in New Jersey are using 630 million to 1 billion gallons of water every day!
