Swimming pools, golf courses and car washes, oh my!

Swimming pools, golf courses and car washes, oh my!

You can hardly miss the news of the expanding effects of the drought in California and other areas in the Southwest.  All businesses and homeowners in the region are affected.  Swimming pool installers and their associations are scrambling to justify the use of water for their business survival.  Golf courses, a historically new business on the desert landscape, requires a water supply that stretched a relatively good supply before 2010.  And car washes, restaurants, landscape businesses and, of course, agriculture need water to endure.  When businesses fail, jobs are lost.  And we all know the impact of that cycle.

So, what do we do?  Solutions can be complex, but one that is the most effective, that everyone can do whether you can afford the luxuries floating on the water supply or not, is conserve.  

Route what little rain water you receive to your pool.  Use a pool cover. Golf on brown grass. Let your car get a little dusty.  Everyone knows there is a drought, so do your part and act/look proactive. It getting so if you don’t you are displaying a clear, self-serving purpose.
