The City of Bremerton residents enjoy some of the highest quality water in the country and our water rates are among the lowest in the state. However, if our community is to continue to grow and prosper, we must bring to practice conservation of our remarkable water resource.
Bremerton's water sources depend on rainfall to fill the surface reservoir and to supply groundwater aquifers. Peak day usage in the summer can increase water demands from 30 to 100% which can put a strain on the water system. Reducing outdoor water use will help reduce summer time peaks. Rain barrels are a great way to save water outdoors as is washing your car at a car wash that recycles their water. Using native plants and mulches in your garden can help too.
Bremerton has been implementing a conservation program for the past several years and has many resources to help customers be efficient with their water both inside their home and business as well as outdoors.
Saving water is easy for customers to do. The conservation ideas presented here are easy to do and will save you money as well as save water.
