Water-wise tip: Save water, energy with efficient dishwasher

This is part of a weekly feature in Home & Garden, highlighting ways residents can save water.

•  Need a new dishwasher? Get a water- and energy-efficient model.

Save two ways. You’ll cut down on water use as well as electricity with lower bills for each. Water wise, expect to save three to eight gallons per load. If you do a load of dishes a day, that’s potential savings of about 1,100 to 3,000 gallons a year.
