Despite calls for action, county water usage increases

The San Diego Union Tribune reported today that San Diego County water usage has increased – not decreased – since the Governor urged residents to cut back.

California is suffering a severe drought, and though water restrictions have not been mandated yet, residents could face cutbacks in the very near future.

“We’re going to the board on July 15 with a proposal for emergency regulations,” said Max Gomberg, senior environmental scientist for the state Water Resources Control Board.

Watering lawns and landscape accounts for the vast majority of residential water use. If you’ve been thinking about an artificial lawn or you are looking for ways to help conserve, EasyTurf is your answer. Seventy percent of a household’s water usage is spent on landscaping – watering the lawn. 70 percent! That’s huge.

I know not everyone in California is going to install EasyTurf to save us from the drought, but imagine if we did! We’d save millions of gallons every day. There’s another benefit to installing EasyTurf and saving water – if you save 70 percent of the water you used, you’ll also be paying 70 percent on your water bill every month. EasyTurf will pay for itself in the long run.

Be it to save water or money, EasyTurf is the most realistic, durable turf on the market. You’ll have a lush, green lawn year round without having to water once.
