The Danbury Water Department has issued water conservation tips. Conservation measures have helped to mitigate the drought situation, but the Danbury Water Department always recommends the careful use of water, especially in a time of lower than normal rainfall.
The Department issued four basic tips this month: economize, repair leaks, install water saving devices and reuse water.
The department recommends shutting off the valve to outdoor fixtures in winter and drain back the pipes feeding these fixtures to prevent frozen pipes. You can check a water meter to see if the dial is moving when all water-using appliances are not being used in order to detect leaks.
