The state of California received the best holiday present of all this year – rain! Two separate storms passed over the state and dumped much needed rain on drought-ravaged landscapes.
While the rainy weather was welcomed with open arms and residents continue to do their best to conserve the precious water resources we still do have left, it is still not enough.
Desert Water Agency General Manager David Luker called the latest reduction in water use an encouraging accomplishment, but said “we need to maintain this momentum and increase efficiency efforts into the New Year.”
With California’s major drought problem an overall 10% reduction in water use may sound great, but unfortunately it’s still short of the Gov. Jerry Brown’s statewide target and with forecasters predicting another dry year, Californians need to get on board with water conservation efforts.
The single most effective means of conserving water is by eliminating the need to water and maintain your lawn and outdoor garden areas. Homeowners can contribute to the state’s water conservation goals by switching out their traditional lawns with environmentally-friendly artificial grass lawns.
With a wide selection of grasses to suit every budget, application use, and color/texture preference, Purchase Green grasses are the best option for homeowners looking to chip in and do their part to save water during the drought.
