In Alabama, when you save water, you are reducing your demand for coal-burned electricity production.  A tremendous amount of energy is wasted for the purpose of extraction, filtration, heating, and pumping water, often to flush down the toilet or water the yard.  Install low-flow showerheads and low-use toilets to reduce consumption.  Install a water heating system that only heats on demand.  Take a shower instead of a bath and make it a short one.  Wash fewer clothes and be sure to do it in cold water.  Install Rain-barrels and Rain-gardens to harness natural resources and reduce run-off.
