Pop quiz: How many lakes does Wisconsin have? The answer’s not as simple as you think. The official tally is 15,074—significantly higher than our neighbors to the west, who are famous for these bodies of water—but that figure has been passionately debated.
Regardless, protecting our natural resources and conserving water is more important now than ever. That’s why, in honor of World Water Day, we wanted to bring you some simple ways to save water at home.

Load up the Dishwasher
Here’s the excuse you’ve been looking for to skip all that post-meal scrubbing. If your dishwasher is ENERGY STAR® certified or built after 2013, you’ll only be using 3–5 gallons of water per load, compared to about 11 gallons when you wash by hand. Just don’t forget to fill it up all the way!
Not only is the constant “plink… plink...” sound incredibly annoying, but all those drips and drops of a leaky pipe or faucet can really add up—about 110 gallons of water wasted each month. That’s why it’s important to fix leaky pipes and faucets!
