At this point in our states water shortage we all should be asking ourselves, “How can i help water delivery los angeles conserve water? “. Thankfully, technological advances in regular household items are giving us the ability to conserve water and energy in our daily routines. Everything from weather smart irrigation control systems to water efficient appliances are allowing us to take control over our water consumption to do our part in conserving a precious resource.
Significant advancements in artificial grass manufacturing have helped pave the way for a broadening interest in the use of artificial grass. Artificial grass has proven to be a key tool in reducing household water consumption of which, on average, 60% goes to irrigating landscape.
The use of artificial grass has never made more sense. We are in a situation where water reservoirs and snow pack are at record lows and water bills are at record highs, artificial grass is a solution for both issues. Installing an artificial grass lawn can reduce your water bill by up to 70% (or more if you have a lot of grass).
Most Southern California residents are generally aware of the current drought conditions in California. What most of us do not realize are the dire consequences these conditions are having in certain areas. In San diego, Orange County, Los angeles and Riverside County we have felt recent rate hikes from our local water authorities and we’ve seen the push for water conservation. These are mild consequences compared to the effects it is having on some other counties across the state.
As of December 2009, these conditions are causing major economic drawbacks in areas such as Fresno County, where a large portion of the labor force is tied to agriculture. This has overwhelmed social services programs and has strained state agencies’ ability to respond quickly, resulting in high unemployment rates and food shortages. Also effecting water allocations are the new court-mandated restrictions recently placed on the Central Valley Project (CVP) water diversions through the Delta to protect the Delta Smelt. This has led to a 20 – 30% decrease in Delta diversions. CVP water deliveries west of the San Joaquin Valley are currently at 10% of contractors allocations. This time in 2008 and 2007 they were at 40 and 50 percent, respectively.
These points only touch the surface of the issues that face California’s water supply. 2010 is expected to be another dry year as statewide water reservoirs are already at just 65% of average. The years between 2006 – 2009 was the 12th driest three year period on record since the state state started keeping hydrological records. The same three year period also marks a time of unprecedented water restrictions across the state.
