Water conservation involves an action that sufficiently reduces the loss, use, or waste of water in hopes of preserving its overall quality. A water conservation measure may incorporate an action, behavioral change, device, technological design, or process that achieves the reduction in water consumption. Water efficiency is a term used to describe a tool of water conservation that enforces more efficient water use; therefore, reducing the overall water demand. Residential, commercial, and institutional operators should evaluate the value, cost-effectiveness, and performance of a water efficiency device before employing it on a regular basis.
