Water conservation means doing the same with less, by using water more efficiently or reducing where appropriate, in order to protect the resource now, and for the future. Using water wisely will reduce pollution and health risks, lower water costs, and extend the useful life of existing supply and waste treatment facilities. To ensure that we have enough cost-effective water for current and future Steinbach residents, we need to work at reducing the amount of water we waste daily.
