DRINKING WATER IS A PRECIOUS NATURAL RESOURCE
Hooksett Village Water Precinct is committed to reducing water losses, water waste and water use in accordance with our State-approved Water Conservation Plan. For example, to reduce water losses we implement a vigilant leak detection survey and repair program. Additionally, we reduce water use by minimizing tank overflows, optimizing equipment operations and employing a tiered water conservation-based rate structure. To reduce water waste, we encourage the use of new water efficient fixtures, educate customers about water conservation and have initiated a water meter modernization program. Through the implementation of these approaches, our system and our customers not only achieve water efficiency, but also energy efficiency through reducing energy usage associated with pumping, treating, distributing and using water.
"Water efficiency is a crucial component to ensuring enough clean water for today and for the future.
Water is a finite resource, meaning we cannot make more water to meet the increased competing demands of a growing population and economy. We also do not have full control over water quality or quantity due to the geologic makeup of our state, climate change, lingering pollution issues left by past generations, and new emerging contaminants of concern. So how do we adapt to the upsurge of competing water demands knowing that there are limitations to the quality and the availability of water supplies?
We use only what we need." NH Department of Environmental Services
