Community Aquifer Protection Program (CAPP)
- Be aware of and follow all water conservation and water shortage rules in effect in your community. Don't assume --- even if you get your water from a private well---that you need not observe good water use rules. Every drop counts.
- Encourage your employer to promote water conservation in the work place. Suggest that water conservation be put in employee orientation and training programs.
- Report all significant water losses (broken pipes, open hydrants, errant sprinklers, abandoned free-flowing wells, etc.) to the property owner, local authorities or your water local water department.
- Encourage your school system and local government to help develop and promote a water conservation ethic among children and adults.
- Support efforts and programs that create a concern for water conservation among tourists and visitors to our communities as well as our state Make sure your visitors understand the need for, and the benefits of, water conservation.
- Encourage your friends and neighbors to be part of a water-conscious community. Promote water conservation in community newsletters, on bulletin boards and by example. Encourage your friends, neighbors and co-workers to "do their part".
- Conserve water because it's the right thing to do. Don't waste water just because someone else is footing the bill such as when you are staying at a hotel or motel.
- Try to do one thing each day that will result in saving water. Don't worry if the savings are minimal. Every drop counts. You can make a difference.
Together we can put a CAPP on water waste!
