What is a drought? Have you ever seen a stream or river in the spring, flowing full of water and life and then come back to see it dried up in the heat of the summer? Have you ever seen a cornfield in July or August that looks shriveled and dry? Sometimes when we have a long period without much rain, these things can happen. That is a drought.
WHAT CAN YOU DO TO SAVE WATER DURING A DROUGHT?
Water is a precious resource. All living things depend on water to survive. Unfortunately, few of us think much about the importance of water until it is in limited supply. To help you appreciate just how important water is to all of us, here are a few interesting facts:
One newspaper a day means the use of 66,000 gallons of water a day.
DO's and DON'TS of WATER CONSERVATION:
IN THE BATHROOM: (almost two-thirds of home water use is for toilet flushing and bathing!)
IN THE KITCHEN AND LAUNDRY:
IN THE GARDEN:
Never put water down a drain that can be used for something else such as watering a garden or cleaning.
Educate and encourage your family, friends, neighbors, and school to practice water conservation
Try to do one thing each day to conserve water. EVERY DROP COUNTS!
