Water conservation is the most cost-effective and environmentally sound way to reduce our demand for water. This extends our water supplies farther, and protects the water resources for the Yucaipa Valley.
The future world population will require more resources that the current population is using today. Important questions to answer are:
- Should the current population be expected to minimize the use of resources to allow the future doubling of the population?
- Do future generations need to use half of the resources currently used by the existing population today?
- It is inevitable that the world population will double. Who bears the responsibility of maintaining adequate resources for these future generations?
Our water supply is finite. Efficient use of this natural resource is imperative for current and future generations to utilize this precious resource. Water conservation methods should be practiced by everyone throughout the year. Periodic episodes of drought are an inevitable occurrence in any region; however Southern California’s precipitation ranks lower than most regions leading to periodic drought conditions. Water Conservation habits will provide additional water reliability during the low precipitation years.
Yucaipa Valley Water District has taken various steps to ensure our water supply quality and quantity is dependable. Unexpected variables such as weather, environmental restrictions and infrastructure repairs can play a role on the availability of this water supply.
