Can I take my usual showers?

The average American shower uses 17.2 gallons of water and most Americans take an average of an 8.2 minute shower. By simply shortening our showering time to around 5 minutes and installing low flow shower heads, we can save up to 12.5 gallons with a low flow shower head and up to 25 gallons with a standard 5.0 gallon per minute shower head. The Hesperia Water District encourages all our customers to increase their water conservation in whatever ways they can and as you can see by making small changes, like shorter shower times, we can make a real impact in conserving our most precious natural resource.
