Conserving Water During this Record California Drought
As California endures a fourth year of extremely dry conditions, the government is urging people statewide to implement various water conservation methods
. In Southern California, where the conditions are most extreme, everyone is taking action. LA Unified, the state's largest school district, has taken a number of measures to reduce its water usage, including removing thirsty lawns, installing efficient toilets, and using new irrigation technology. While the school district is doing its part, on an individual level students can help out too. Here are some personal water conservation tips
Save Water in the Bathroom
- Turn off the water while brushing your teeth or shaving.
- Try and limit showers to three minutes or less, and/or turn off the water when you don't need it (while shampooing, soaping, etc).
- Place a bucket in the shower to catch water, which can later be used to water plants, etc.
- Make sure your toilet tank is not leaking into the bowl.
- Do not use the toilet simply to flush garbage, that's what the cans are for.
Turn Your Student into a Handyman
- Identify and fix leaks around the house, including sinks, toilets, hoses, etc.
- Consider aerating the lawn so it requires less water.
- Adjust the sprinklers so that they cover only the area that needs watering.
