A synergy that may not be obvious is the one between reduced water use and reduced
energy use. Think of the energy used to heat water for manufacturing processes, showers,
or bathroom faucets—using less water will impact the energy used to provide it. You
don’t have to power a sprinkler system if you don’t need irrigation. A regular showerhead
will conservatively use 25 gallons of water for a 10-minute shower. A low-flow shower
head will use 18—a savings of 7 gallons per shower. Use low-flow fixtures in an eight-
story apartment building and not only are thousands of gallons of water being saved, but
the energy needed to heat those gallons is also being saved.
