加州水塘存水量

【KTSF】

加州水資源部表示,州政府的供水系統將停止向顧客供水,受影響的有2500萬人和100萬公頃農地,但州府指,受影響的地區都有其他的供水來源,包括水塘和地下水。

加州政府的供水系統(State Water Project)目前向29個地方水務局出售用水,週五的終止供水決定是54年來的首次。這個29個地方水務局2014年將不會獲州府供水。

州府的水資源部表示,系統中存量不夠,州長宣布進入緊急狀態時,已下令水資源部採取措施。州府的多個水庫,存量只有三成。

水資源部表示,要增加水庫存量,需要由今天起到5月,天天下大雨或雪,即使如是,加州還是處於乾旱。

    Everybody need to save water in constructive manner in lieu of what the government said to reduce 10% of their usage only. There are no standard what is 10%.
    My usual habit at home are as follows:
    1.) I only use 1 gallon of water to clean my car (in lieu of washing) whenever required;
    2.) After cleaning my car, I will use the muddy water to water the flower bed in my backyard;
    3.) I seldom use the running water to wash my hands. I will use a water bucket in the bath-tough to collect the hand washing water (after using the toilet). When the waste water is collected up to certain volume, I will use it to flush the closet.
    4.) Generally we will not use running water to clean vegetables / fruit / food / table tools. We will use a small bucket to hold water to wash / rinse them. After washing, if there are no fats there, we will use it to water the flower beds.

    Of course, there are many many other ways to save water.
