Ways to save water

Because Oak Park relies on Lake Michigan water, much of the cost consumers pay is beyond the control of local government. But how much water a household uses can be managed through conservation. Just follow these simple tips:

  • Turning off the water while brushing teeth
  • Install low-flow showerheads
  • Use the dishwasher’s quick-wash option
  • Set washing machine’s water level to load size
  • Install rain barrels to collect free water
