The Importance of Water Efficiency
Water is vital to the survival of everything on the planet and is limited in supply. The Earth might seem like it has abundant water, but in fact less than 1 percent is available for human use. While the population and the demand on freshwater resources are increasing, supply remains constant. Water managers in 40 of 50 states expect water shortages in some portion of their states under average conditions in the next 10 years.
Water management is going to be an important challenge in the Ponderosa with this winter's small snow pack. You will find important suggestions for water conservations on the following site:
