As we head into the summer season, all indications at this point is that we may not see the amount of water in our rivers and lakes as we have in the past few years. In fact, one article (https://cronkitenews.azpbs.org/2021/04/15/snowfall-in-the-west-indicates-20-year-drought-will-persist-and-intensify/) stated that, “sparse monsoon rainfall last summer and spotty snowfall this winter have combined to dramatically worsen the drought across the West in the past year, and spring snowmelt won’t bring much relief”. The key this summer (starting now) is to conserve water in our daily lives to ensure our water supplies are not negatively impacted during the rest of the year. The District mandated water conservation tactics a few years ago and we are presently asking that residents start taking steps to conserve water usage knowing how our water supplies have been impacted over the past summer and winter seasons. What steps can you do as a resident? We have links to various websites below that will help educate people on what they can do to help with this effort. Keep in mind that FLMD does not necessarily endorse these websites. Rather, they are provided for informational purposes:
I heard a great quote years ago from Tony Robbins that stated, “The only impossible journey is the one you never begin”. Let’s work together now to conserve our precious water supply!
