Increased urbanization and periods of drought have put a strain on municipal water supplies nationwide. As a result, more and more groundwater has been pumped from local wells and aquifers, causing concerns about where future water supplies will come as cities grow. That’s why it behooves us all to conserve water at all times, both when rain seems plentiful as well as when drought restrictions apply.
When it comes to water conservation, Georgia gets a B from the Alliance for Water Efficiency’s scorecard on effectiveness of laws and policies regarding water conservation. That’s not bad, but each homeowner can help conserve water on a daily basis, thereby making Georgia a leader in water conservation, and an example for ensuring plentiful supplies in the future.
