Use Your Water Sense

The South Carolina Department of Health and Environment Control (DHEC) is a partner in the EPA's WaterSense program that works to spread information on products that save water in the home or office. Home owners and businesses can decrease water bills by as much as 30 percent by making a few smart buying decisions. Saving water is easy; many water saving products are available for use, and they don't change the way you live or do business. Look for products with the WaterSense label for your bathroom and lawn. Use a WaterSense irrigation partner for your landscape watering system.

If one out of every ten homes in the United States used water-efficient fixtures, it could save more than 300 billion gallons of water and nearly 2 billion dollars every year. By using water more efficiently, we can help keep water supplies for future generations, save money, and protect the environment. Visit to find easy practices you can do at home to reduce your water bill and protect your water resources!
