Summer Savings

 align=Reducing the amount of water we use during the summer offers easy savings. There are lots of different ways to make this heppen. Some experts estimate that about half the water we use on our landscapes is wasted to due to evaporation, overwatering and run-off. There is a report below about those statistics. Take a few minutes to examine their findings.

In the report titled 2010 Water Plan for Region C in Texas, is a lot more information that will impact you as a resident of Dallas Ft. Worth Metroplex and beyond area. Take a few minutes to review these vital statistics about the region we live in here; and see what your thoughts are on doing your part.

In this report, calculations on how much water each of these 18 cities could save every day during the summer if they cut outdoor water use by 25% is the composite figure you have below. The potential is staggering when you stop and think about overall usage:

  • Austin: 13.9 million gallons a day
  • Dallas: 22.7 million gallons a day
  • Fort Worth: 27.6 million gallons a day
  • Houston: 17.6 million gallons a day
  • Plano: 10.4 million gallons a day

Is a 25% reduction in outdoor water use realistic? Cities around the country have proved it is possible time and time again. One local example: the San Antonio Water System estimates it has cut outdoor water use by 30%. They have a River Walk inside the downtown city. If they can do it, let's begin by us doing our part.

The 2005 Plan had this to say about Region C of which we are a part.

What's at Issue? - Region C includes 12 of the 20 fastest-growing communities in Texas. This high rate of growth will put increasing pressure on the region's water sources. Another factor driving the high demands and projected needs for water resources is the region's projected high per capita use rates (some of the highest in the state). In addition, the plan currently proposes to supply 20% more than the projected 2060 demand (an excess of 810,000 Acre Feet.) To meet these inflated demands, four environmentally damaging and unnecessary reservoirs are proposed, for a cost of $4 billion.

The owner of Atlas Plumbing called to provide the cost estimate for installing a new Rinnai tankless water heater. He was very knowledgeable and instilled a sense of trust that the job would be done right. I scheduled the installation as soon as possible.
