The easiest and most cost-effective means of extending our water supply is to use less water. You can reduce water use many ways, such as installing water-saving devices on faucets and toilets and choosing water-efficient appliances. Rebates for water-efficient washing machines and toilets are available to customers who pay their water bill to the City of Kent.

For more ways to save, check out Puget Sound Energy’s rebate program.

Water Conservation Tips

Water conservation is always encouraged, whether we are experiencing a drought or above normal rainfall.

Here are some simple, effective conservation ideas:

  • Take shorter showers and replace your showerhead with a low-flow showerhead.
  • Only operate automatic dishwashers and clothes washers when they are fully loaded. Set the water level for the size load you are washing.
  • Replace your old, high-water-use toilet with a low flow toilet.
  • Turn off the tap when brushing teeth. Letting the faucet run can waste up to 4 gallons of water.
  • Do not wash your vehicles at home; use commercial car washes that recycle water.
  • Consider drought-tolerant plants as you plan your garden this year.
