Smarter Business: Greening Advisor


Water Use Overview

Every year, almost half the world’s population lives without a steady supply of clean drinking water. In the United States, many sources of freshwater are being depleted faster than they can be recharged by natural processes. The Colorado River, for example, often runs dry before it reaches the sea, hurting farmers, residents, and aquatic life. Water conservation is especially important in light of the looming pressures of global warming, which threaten to significantly increase evaporation as well as the frequency of droughts. Water conservation strategies such as water meters, low-flow fixtures, and more efficient landscaping techniques, can help ensure that future generations have access to the water they need, while saving your company money.
