Minimizing the future effects of drought
Roseville, CA- The past is proven. Being water efficient in California is important even in times of heavy rain and abundant snowpack. When water is plentiful, ongoing water efficiency minimizes the future effects of drought and water shortages by helping create a more sustainable supply. It also creates that muscle memory so that when dry conditions persist next time, you’re already in water-efficiency mode.
