American Illinois Water has some tips for saving water during the hot summer months. Spokeswoman Karen Cotton says you can get some help from the weather.
Some other water saving tips are to turn the tap off when brushing your teeth and only washing clothes when you can fill the whole washing machine. If your water bill is running high, check for leaky faucets or runny toilets. If a few drops of food coloring in the tank of a toilet end up in the bowl, there’s a leak.
