Posted April 15, 1997 12:00 a.m. EDT

— With summer just around the corner, local groups are urging consumers to conserve water, and they offer several tips that could save a lot of liquid with just a little effort. Conservation, of course, saves not only water, but money on water bills.

Experts suggest such simple things as turning off water faucets while brushing your teeth, and taking quick showers instead of full-tub baths. Also, don't run partially full dishwasher and washing machine loads, and when watering your lawn, do so at night and be sure to use a nozzle on the hose.
