AVONDALE, AZ, Dec. 7 /PRNewswire/ - Today, Liberty Water announced as part of its water conservation strategy, the release of its Water Footprint Calculator, a tool designed to help its customers become more conscious about their water usage and help track what consumes the most water in their homes.

The Water Footprint Calculator also allows customers to compare their usage against their community or state's average. The calculator examines four specific areas of home water use - Outdoors, Washing, Kitchen, and Bathroom. Designed internally by its Environmental, Health & Safety Department, the tool allows consumers to assess the impact of various water-efficient practices, save their usage information and log in at a later date to track their progress.

"This is a really exciting tool that will help our customers understand how much water they are using while allowing us to focus future conservation programs where they will be most effective", commented David Pasieka, Liberty Water's President. "By empowering our customers, they will be able to take action and measure their immediate success. It is our intention to collect and analyze this usage information on an anonymous basis which we'll be able to share with the state regulatory agencies to help support conservation policy formulations".

The Water Footprint Calculator is available to both Liberty Water customers and the general public and can be accessed online at www.libertywater.com.
