Amidst the huge drought that is making its way to the West, big states such as California and Nevada are experiencing one of the worst shortages of water since the last major drought since 1967-1977. Up to date, 17 rural communities have been providing 40,000 people in metropolitan cities with water, who are facing the danger of running out of water within the next 2-4 months. It is speculated that emergency plans will soon be put in place, in which drinking water will have to be shuttled in from trucks and additional water wells will have to be drilled to harvest water from the ground. Very few people have taken attention to the historic significance of this drought, as the West is on track for having the worst drought in approximately 500 years. In the past 1,000 years, California has experienced multiple droughts that have lasted 10 or 20 years in a row.
Such beautiful lakes such as Lake Mead in Nevada, have been steadily dropping in water levels within the last year, with its water capacity sinking to critical levels. Without rain to replenish our water sources, we must all take responsibility in conserving water and making the most of the water that we have. Water is a very precious resource that is growing scarce by the day and drastically affecting our living conditions. Not only will the water shortage affect our drinking supply of water, there will also be scarce resources that will very soon prohibit us from washing our cars, taking extended showers, and watering our grass.
We can start helping in the water conservation process by taking a proactive approach to reduce our water consumption, with watering grass being one of the most wasteful in our water conservation initiative. In the last ten years, Field of Green has helped communities reduce water consumption and estimated about 400 million gallons of water saved. Our high quality synthetic grass requires no watering at all and maintains a rich, green color all year around. Give us a call today and let us help you conserve water and start making the world a greener place by reducing carbon footprint on the Earth. As mandatory water conservation measures will soon be put in place for home owners and business owners alike, there is no doubt water conservation will be a key to maintaining a steady level of water as we hope for rain fall in the following months. Together, we can help you save time, money, water and resources during this season of drought.
