Water Conservation

The state of California’s main water sources have been severely impacted by record dry weather conditions. Here are some tips for  conserving water and therefore reducing your bill amount:

  1. Monitor your water bill for unusually high use. Your bill statement and water meter are tools that can help you discover leaks.
  2. Water your lawn and garden in the morning or evening when temperatures are cooler, in order to minimize evaporation. 
  3. Use a broom instead of a hose to clean your driveway and sidewalk areas and save valuable water resources.
  4. Shorten your average shower time by a just minute or two and you’ll save up to 150 gallons per month. Upgrade older toilets with newer, more  water efficient models.
  5. Turn off the water flow while brushing your teeth and save up to 25 gallons of water per  month.
  6. Washing dark clothes in cold water saves both water and energy, while also helping preserve your clothing’s  colors.
  7. Turn off the water flow while  washing your hair and save up to 150 gallons of water per month.

Los Angeles To Siphon Water From Minorities' Bodies

reprinted from The Onion

LOS ANGELES—After 12 years of political controversy, legal delays and statewide referendums, California legislative officials and Los Angeles municipal authorities finally greenlighted a proposal Monday to allow water-poor Los Angeles to begin drawing water for public use from the bodies of the metro area's estimated seven million minority residents.

"With its rich tapestry of black, Asian and Hispanic cultures, Los Angeles' diversity is one of its greatest strengths," said L.A. mayor Richard Riordan, announcing the plan. "And with some 15 gallons of water contained within the body of an average 170-pound L.A. minority resident, these people also represent one of our city's great untapped natural resources."

Initially proposed by the Federal Bureau of Reclamation in 1938 and revived by the L.A. Department of Water & Power in 1985, the $10 billion minority-drainage system will draw nearly 100 million gallons of water a year from non-Caucasian residents via an elaborate network of pipelines individually inserted into their bodies. The water will then be pumped to various aquifers and reservoirs throughout the city, where it will be processed and made available for public consumption.
