Q: Dear Owlie, 
I’m interested in buying new water-efficient appliances. What appliances should I buy that will help me save water?
Sincerely,

A: Dear Water-Saving Shopper

Thank you for your water-saving question. The main water-using appliances are dishwashers and laundry machines. When purchasing these appliances, look for water-efficient models. Installing a water- and energy-efficient dishwasher and washing machine, and running full loads, can save you 15-45 gallons per load. For more information, visit www.ieua.org.

Best wishes to you and your water-saving efforts, 
Owlie
