There are many ways homeowners of Pasadena can help to save water. Water conservation should be practiced throughout schools, industry, businesses, etc. Water conservation habits start at early age. Using high water-efficiency washing machines, toilets, landscaping systems and rainwater harvesting, showerheads are essential in water conservation.

Water Conservation Tips in the Bathroom

- Use high water-efficiency toilets.

- If you don't have a water-efficient model showerhead, consider one.

- Don't take long time-wise showers.

- While you are shaving, turn off the water. Instead of allowing the water run continuously, fill the sink with hot water.

- Dispose of trash in the trash-can, not into the toilet.

- While washing your hands or cleaning your teeth, don't turn on the water until it's time to rinse.

- Be careful of leaking toilets and faucets. It is often an easy fix that can save thousands of gallons of water.

Water Conservation Tips in the Kitchen

- To cut your sink water consumption in half, install faucet aerators.

- Run the dishwasher only when full.

- Keep a bucket of water in the refrigerator. It will be refreshing and will not waste water.

- Use garbage disposals carefully. They can waste water unnecessarily.

- Do not rinse dishes. Dry scrape instead and let the dishwasher take care of the rest.

- Use the lowest water-level setting on the washing machine whenever you can.

- Using cold water instead of hot water can save energy.

Water Conservation Tips for Outdoor

- To keep the most types of grass in Taxes healthy, you need only one inch of water per week. Place cans at various distances away from the sprinkler. Turn off the sprinklers system and time how many minutes it takes to fill the can with 1 inch of water.

- Don't water your lawn in the daytime, especially during hot summer season. If you do, water will evaporate quickly. When it is windy outside, skip the lawn irrigation.

- For bedded plants, shrubs, or trees use drip irrigation systems.

- Always cover spas and pools. Don't let water evaporate!

- Most people use an automated sprinklers system. While it is easier to manage, it often lead to over-use of water. It is better to irrigate the lawn under your personal supervision. The best way to use the system safely, is to install rain shut-off equipment, set it to run infrequently, check your sprinklers constantly (so there is no leaks), and adjust the angle so the water will only cover the grass, not any other types of pavements. It is also wise to use low-angle sprinkler systems.

- Collect rainwater whenever possible. You can use a cistern or a rain barrel.

- Renovate your lawn with natural, drought-tolerant plants, trees, grasses common to Pasadena. They are water-efficient and well-adapted.

- Try to avoid cleaning sidewalks and patios with water.

- If you have a regular grass on your lawn, don't cut it too short. Taller grass keeps moisture better.

- To make your lawn look green without watering, consider installing artificial grass. Today, synthetic grass looks so real, no one can tell the difference. It doesn't need maintenance, watering or chemical treatment as natural lawn does.

Water sprinkler, car in water, California water fines

Despite the dry winter, California State Water Resources Control Board and cities representatives support the state water regulators in Sacramento to fine residents up to $500 per water violation. Orginal water rules were set on a temporary basis during the California drought 2014-2017 by Gov. Jerry Brown. Now, according to the water conservation portal, it will, most likely, become a permanent Califonia law.

Despite the drought officially ended by Gov. Jerry Brown, Mediterranean climate in major parts of California remains the same. Water demands in warm, hot, dry summers and mild, moderately wet winters always exceed the water resources. A five-year drought raised concerns. It costs the state economy billions of dollars. It stressed forests and left more than 100 million dead trees behind. But the effects are far more deadly than anyone could imagine.

California doesn't look green anymore. In the historic state of drought, Californian lawns are now on the edge of extinction. Homeowners and communities are continuously looking for alternatives and the artificial grass looks more and more attractive.


The "Daily Show" host Jon Stewart has his own idea of how to solve the California Drought issue.

"First, as you know, California goes through historic unprecedented dry spell. " - says Jon Stewart at Thursday's Daily Show. "We are talking about original movie ideas. BOOM! Take that Jurassic world. Hey, what if they build another dinosaur theme park, but this time things also went horribly wrong."


As a drought becomes a major concern in California, the idea of replacing old lawns with artificial grass becomes more and more attractive to home and business owners. In the interview with Ken Wayne, Fox News, San Francisco, Jim Luthi, the homeowner of Newark, confessed he has bit the bullet and replace the sod with artificial turf: "Thirty something years of having droughts on and off. "
