California... Save water !!

Often, the amount of importance that one places on lifestyle and entertainment is not shown on environmental and social awareness. Environmental preservation is one of the most important tasks in this century and going forward as well. Nature has gifted our world with a replenishing mechanism to recharge lost resources. As with lot of other things, there is a particular pace in which this happens. If these precious resources are drained faster than they are replenished, we will lose them faster than we would like to.

Long story put short; there have been recent announcements which suggest that California's main water resources have been severely impacted and that most of the water currently in use is from the reserves. It is a bit of a concern and so would like to spread the word as much as possible about the importance of water conservation before it is too late.

Metropolitan water district and the family of Southern California water agencies maintain a great website "Bewaterwise" with various tips and suggestions to save water. The first step is to take the easy 20-gallon challenge. Each person who follows the simple steps can conserve as much as 20 gallons of water per day. In addition, numerous rebates are offered to encourage residents of Southern California for purchasing water-saving appliances like the rotating sprinklers, high-efficiency clothes washers and water-saving toilets. Industries, Institutions and builders can also save on approved water-saving installations. Finally, a conscious and a collective effort from everyone will go a long way in preventing such crisis in the future.
