IF SO, TAKE A LOOK AT THE STATS BELOW, AND SEE HOW MUCH WATER YOU ACTUALLY USE AND WASTE!California THEN AND now!

80% of water is used for agriculture.800 billion gallons of groundwater is extracted per year.90% reduction of mountain snow by 2090.83% of snowfall was below normal in 2012-2013 winter.It costs $600,000 to dig a deep well.California has about one year of water stored.Been dropping more than 12 million acre feet of water yearly since 2011.
This is where we are headed contWestern U.S. Drought Stats.
Current drought is driest in 1,200 years.Evidence suggests this is a mega drought (lasting more than twenty years).Using tree rings that go back to the time of Christopher Columbus, shows that we have not had a drought this bad since that time.Utah is the second driest state in the nation and the number three spot for population growth.
What can we do to improve?Check faucets and pipes for leaks. Insulate you pipes.Take shorter showers.Minimize use of your kitchen sink as a disposal.When washing dishes by hand, dont leave the water running.Water you yard and garden early in the morning.Use a broom instead of a hose to clean your driveway.Monitor your water meter to make sure you dont have leaks.Waste water today, live in a desert tomorrow!
