I turn the water off while I brush my teeth. This saves about 1/10 of a gallon of our precious water during this hideous drought.
I use as little as possible to water my drought tolerant plants. This saves water as well.
please tell me why the city workers do this?
Oh, might I add...we ate out at 12:00 and went back down the SAME street at 12:45. It was still going.
I looked up the flow rate for something like this...it's a minimum of 250GPM (gallons per minute). In one hour that would be 15,000 gallons of water down the strom sewer...more than 2 months of water for my family of four! They say it's to clean out rust, but for how long? Won't running it a few minutes do the same?
