Water Conservation

Water is a precious and limited resource in Harwich and we cannot afford to waste it. We should all conserve this resource by becoming Water Wise. Water conservation reduces the need for developing new water sources and storage facilities, protects both streams and wetlands, and can save you money. Every drop counts and you can make a difference by paying attention to how you use water everyday and conserving. The Harwich Water Department has prepared the following water conservation tips to assist water consumers in conserving water and saving money.

Water that is used outdoors during the summer in Harwich accounts for up to 60% of the Town's total annual water consumption.  There is so much you can do to conserve on irrigation that we have a separate tab for these conservation tips.  LEARN ABOUT IRRIGATION CONSERVATION
