I was sent this great article in the voice of SD by Rob Davis (Link).
The article highlights the Utility Consumers’ Action Network (UCAN) recent water conservation report. The report can be found here: UCAN Report
I liked this quote:
“I violently disagree with this almost pathological preoccupation with education,” Shames said. “Education is like an excuse for yet another pamphlet.”
I agree that too much emphasis is put on education and we need more practical solutions. I liked the suggestion of catching the water in the shower while the water warms up and using this water to water your plants.
Or how about this… “Fees could be charged to residents with large lawns, creating a pool of money that could be used to subsidize purchases of drought-tolerant plants”
All good ideas!
