Saving Water In Texas

Water Conserving

The proposals we have are two things that we think will save water. We will have a many ways to conserve water. But as big as that may help, the little things will count! Like things around the kitchen, in the bathroom, and in the laundry room. But two major things that will help are using recycled water for golf courses, and using a timed shower. Recycled water helps because it reduces the water used in general. If you use recycled water you can use the water you have used in the past for watering golf courses. The timed shower will time you, you will only have 5 minutes and then the water will stop. If you try to turn the timer on again you must wait 30 minutes. We believe these ways can help save water in Texas and not to let this be an issue anymore in the state of Texas.

Around the kitchen

  • only run the dishwasher with a full load
  • scrape your dishes clean instead of rinsing them before washing
  • use your garbage disposal sparingly
  • place a stopper in the sink to wash pots and pans, rather than turning on faucet each time a rinse is needed

In the bathroom

  • when brushing your teeth, turn off the faucet until it is time to rinse
  • install low-flow showerheads
  • take showers instead of baths; showers with low-flow showerheads often use less water than baths
  • use a toilet tank displacement device; these devices will reduce the volume of water in the tank but still provide enough water for flushing

In the Laundry

  • wash only a full load when using an automatic washing machine
  • use the lowest possible water level setting on the washing machine

All of those mini solutions will help to make a difference. Our big ideas will definately help to save water, but first, our minor ideas

Summary of Shower Saver Article

This shower saver idea will limit the amount of water you use to take your shower.

Some people think taking a shower saves more water than taking a bath, but that’s not always the case.Taking a short shower will save more water than a bath but even a high powered shower could waste more water than a regular bath . one products that will save you water is the Ecocamel jetstorm which saves water by using air in their show. So our idea of the shower saver includes a little bottle thing connected to the shower head that will limit your shower. based on how much water is filled up is how much your able to use.

Summary Of Golf Article

Water use in golf courses is a problem. We know this because in the article Golf’s Use Of Water It explains the issues and how much water is actually used in golf courses. In our proposal we want to use all recycled water for our project. In the article it states the average amount of water used in the golf courses is 2,312,701 acre feet per year. This is over 2.8 billion gallons of water. We can definitely bring this number down by using all recycled water for golf courses instead of water wasting.
