Forecast predicts tough times for Southwest water supply

A recent article from Water Tech Online has predicted a grim forecast for some states in the Southwest United States, including California, this year when it comes to drought conditions and a dry water supply. Whether you have a drinking water system in your home or not, water conservation is a topic that we urge all residents to become familiar with these days. Water waste must be avoided due to drought conditions and less snowpack than average. Some models of water filters or RO systems waste a large percentage of the water they use during the filtration process, but not having a home drinking water system can also pose health risks due to drinking water contamination. Meanwhile, bottled water leads to a large percentage of toxic landfill waste and could be avoided by making an eco-friendly choice.

The article mentioned above discusses data in a press release from the USDA National Water and Climate Center NWCC. There is some positive news for some states though, as Washington, most of Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and the northern parts of Colorado and Utah are expected to have near normal or above normal water supplies through the rest of the summer, according to the forecasts. However, far below normal stream-flows are expected for the southern parts of Oregon and Utah, southwestern Idaho, California, Arizona, New Mexico and western Nevada. As stated in the article, many of these areas are in the nearly 500 counties across the country experiencing drought, according to USDA disaster designations.

Some experts have found that 100% of California is under drought conditions with water supplies in high demand but limited quantity. Officials and experts are scrambling to find ways to save water and limit its use. Our drinking water systems can help residents do their part in this water crisis and save on water waste thanks to our advanced water filtration technology. Household demand for water doesn’t always decrease even though our water supply has here in Irvine. That is why a water filter at the tap may be perfect for your family; water conservation meets high quality drinking water with reduced contamination. Not only is this a cost-effective solution for you, but it is also an eco-friendly solution for our area. Every little bit counts and unfortunately, we just do not have enough water supply to waste what little we do have.
