What does all of this mean? Well, in order to make the most of the water we do have available both now and in the seasons to come, it is important to maintain many of our water conservation efforts not just in the summer, but all throughout the year. In summer's heat it is often easier to remember that water conservation is important. But by adjusting our homes and habits throughout the year, we can continue to conserve this important resource in every season.
To help educate homeowners about the many ways they can work to conserve water resources, the EPA has produced Water Sense, a guide for saving water that will not only protect our resources, but may also save money on your water bill! Most changes are common sense and low cost, but even those upgrades that cost a little more will quickly repay themselves in the cost of water saved.
For information and great ideas, click here to visit Water Sense and learn how you and your family can protect our water supplies in every season! By working together we can save thousands of gallons of fresh water each year and be more prepared to meet future water challenges.
