California has always been a study in never having enough water. Southern California even more so. With a population of more than 38 million Californians living on the edge of disaster, now is the time for residents to reconsider their water usage and their commitment to environmental sustainability. To delay any longer is reckless.
On June 4, 2008, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger declared a state of drought after the driest spring in California’s recorded history. Few noticed. Since that uneventful day, water districts have issued warnings calling for Southern California residents and businesses to do as little as possible in response to dwindling water availability.
When it comes to conserving water, doing a little is never enough.
