Water Conservation

Hey California! Why Save Water?

  • Less than 1% of the world’s fresh water (or about 0.007% of all water on earth) is readily accessible for direct human use.
  • The United Nations has estimated that by 2015 at least 40% of the world's population will lack an adequate supply of water. Even now, one person in five does not have access to safe drinking water
  • 90 percent of the San Diego region's water is imported from the Colorado River and Northern California
  • Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta in Northern California supplies some one-third of Southern California's fresh water supply, and delivers irrigation water to farmers on a massive scale. First constructed in the 1870s, a catastrophic levee failure due to a major earthquake and/or flooding could inundate more than 3 million acres of farmland and cut water supply to millions of Californians for years after.
  • San Diego gets about two-thirds of its water supply from the Colorado River more than anywhere else. The river gets more than 400,000 gallons of treated waste water discharged into it each day. That means you are drinking treated wastewater. “What happens in Vegas doesn’t always STAY in Vegas”
  • April 2009 California's two longest rivers have been named the Nation’s Most endangered waterways because of outdated water management and poor flood planning, Sacramento and the San Joaquin rivers collapse could endanger the water supply of 25 million Californians, flood the state's capital and damage the delicate freshwater delta where the two rivers twine
  • At least 36 states are projecting water shortages between now and 2013.
    California’s drinking water infrastructure needs an investment of $27.87 billion over the next 20 years. Up from an estimated 17.5 billion in 04
  • California has $18.17 billion in wastewater infrastructure needs
  • According to the Environmental Protection Agency, nationwide, more than 1 trillion gallons of water leak from U.S. homes each year
