Healthy Housing Habits – Water use around the home

Any leak that appears—whether in the shower or the toilet—should be repaired as quickly as possible, as this represents significant amounts of wasted water.

Avoid at all costs going to the toilet in the natural environment. This is dangerous to you, other people and the environment.

Do not let used water or rainwater become stagnant or exposed, as leaves, branches, garbage and domestic animals can alter its course or cause it to overflow, resulting in serious issues with bad smells, contamination, and even damage to the home or neighbourhood.
