This is part of a weekly feature in Home & Garden, highlighting ways residents can save water.
• Run the dishwasher only when full.
Depending on the efficiency of your dishwasher, this saves 2 to 4.5 gallons a load. If you can eliminate at least two loads a week, that saves 200 to 500 gallons a year.
