California has been struggling with water problem for many years now. Water and lots of it is needed to maintain a green lawn. However pretty is the sight of a green, manicured lawn it will be gone from southern California.
In an emergency drought order Greater Los Angeles Area will be tearing out 2,100 football fields of grass. Garden makeovers will make way and cacti garden will become a common sight.
California’s water crisis has become worse in the last four years. The force of the water from taps in homes has been greatly reduced. Most residents have resorted to collecting the dishes in the sink and then reusing this water to water their plants. Sprinklers of course have become a thing of yesterday.
The water problem of California should be a wake-up call for the rest of us too. Water wastage is a serious issue. If we want to have safe drinking water, we should be careful not to waste water.
While every individual can help but the problem will find a solution when change happens on how large agricultural companies do their business. Since the best technology brains are there in California, in the upcoming years we will witness some cool technology advances towards conservation of water.
This summer, be cognizant of the water crisis-every drop matters.
