Water Conservation

Why must you use water efficiently?
It reduces your water bill

  • It reduces the cost of water purification and maintenance costs.
  • It makes water available for our increasing population so that EWASCO and the Embu County government can supply water to others who might not have a reliable water supply
  • Ensuring a continuous uninterrupted supply of water in the future

How to conserve water without necessarily changing your lifestyle?

  • Install water-saving shower heads and flow restrictors
  • Take short showers or, if you want a long soak, take a bath
  • Repair leaking/dripping taps
  • Turn the tap off when you are brushing your teeth
  • Buy water efficient devices (small shower heads etc.)
  • Rinse vegetables in a full sink or pan of water.


  • Use a broom instead of a hose to clean your driveway and sidewalk
  • Wash a car on the lawn using a bucket instead of the hose
  • Rainwater harvesting
