California is at a water crossroads: we can continue our costly 100-year-old pattern of trying to find new #water supplies, or we can choose instead to focus on smarter ways of using – and reusing – what we already have, writes @_Heather Cooley: https://t.co/rnyCKWcLIZ
"#Energy efficiency is one of the most effective #water conservation strategies there is, and the reverse is also true. Energy efficiency is a powerful GHG emissions reduction tool, but its role in reducing demand for water should not be ignored."
Cities throughout the US are becoming more water efficient, and it gives me hope. Ex: Manteca’s 2019 per capita water use is 31.8% lower than in 2013. Sure, there are challenges in implementation, but we need a water efficient future. #cawater
