Summer is over and fall has arrived! Water Year 2014 ended on September 30th as one of California’s driest ever with no promise this water year will be any wetter.
It is more important than ever to remind everyone that just because we are out of the dry season doesn’t mean the drought is anywhere near over. When (and if) rain comes conserving water may be the last thing that comes to mind. However, water conservation should be a daily, year-round habit for all of us.
To help guide us into the cooler, fall months in California, here are some tips and ideas on how to conserve water all season long:
-- Keep showers to 5 minutes (a shower timer is handy)
-- Run the dishwasher and washing machine with full loads only
-- Fill the sink when hand washing dishes—don’t let the water run
-- Don’t use the toilet as a wastebasket
-- Keep a bucket in the shower to catch water that can be used on container plants
