Water Conservation 101

With World Water Day approaching, water safeguarding and preservation is at the forefront of our minds. In 2016, the most severe crisis facing cities is water shortages.

From saving water in our homes to large scale water conservation projects, conserving water can help not only the environment but also our back pocket. But what is water conservation?

It also includes the strategies and activities to manage and protect water resources to meet the demand for human consumption.’’ By understanding all of the benefits of conserving water, from the maintenance of essential aquatic ecosystems to saving exorbitant amounts of money spent annually on recycling, cleaning and purifying water, we are helping the world’s environment and our local area.
