Drought Prevention

It is very difficult to prevent droughts, usually because they are caused by lack of rainfall, which is beyond our control. However, you can conserve water so that a little bit goes a long way and that there is enough for you and for everybody else. You can stop washing the car and watering the lawn as well as taking shorter showers and cutting back on unnecessary water use. You can also re-use and recycle water, such as using the water you wash with to water the gardens and wash your car with.
