Why Should I Conserve Water?
According to the Texas State Water Plan, Texas’ existing sources will meet only 75 percent of the projected water demand by 2050. We must use our precious water resources more efficiently or we will have more frequent and more severe water shortages, especially during droughts and periods of peak demand (like hot Texas summers). Using water more efficiently will not only save money, but more importantly will help protect the quality of life of future generations. The cost of new or renovated water infrastructure, wastewater treatment and water supply is estimated to be $107 billion dollars in Texas over the next 50 years. Each of us together can save billions of tax dollars by making our households water smart. We must take on the responsibility of efficient water use now.
