Free WaterSense showerheads for utility customers

GILFORD — Tioga River Water Company is offering its customers located in the Gilford Village Water District and the Tioga River Water Company service area  free WaterSense labeled showerheads as a way to save resources by showering better.

By replacing a showerhead with a WaterSense labeled model, the average family can reduce its annual energy and water costs by more than $70 and save 2,900 gallons of water per year—the amount of water it takes to wash more than 70 loads of loads of laundry and save the energy it takes to power a home for 13 days.

''We all have a vested interest in saving water. Using less water helps to ensure enough water for the future and can delay the need to develop new sources a water,'' said Norman Harris, III, water system operator.
