Water Management

The Postal Service has had longstanding policies and procedures in place to ensure compliance with the Clean Water and Safe Drinking Water Acts and to standardize sound water management practices. While water use in recent years has been relatively flat, about 5.5 million gallons used annually, the Postal Service is working to fine-tune its tracking of water use to identify additional water conservation opportunities, and it plans to reduce water use 10 percent by 2015.
