WATER CONSERVATION THOUGHTS CIRCULATING . . .
• Long time Lagunitas resident Bob Penner wrote that he has been using gray water for 40 years. If you want to know how it works, will it work for you, some facts and myths he invites you to call him at 302-0720. No emails.
• Anonymous lady concerned about water needs suggests the following – flush less; shorten showers; wash your car with a small bucket of water and turn off the water while brushing you teeth. She wonders what others suggestions are.
• Another local is exploring using olla’s to irrigate her garden with. They are an ancient way of irrigating with unglazed clay pots and believe the oldest known ones were found in china over 4000 years old. She wonders the pros and cons for use here?
• Another long time resident never stopped following “yellow is mellow” to save on flushes.
• MMWD reminders: Check faucet leaks and running toilets; Learn to read your water meter and check for unusual usage; Call 945-1523 for free conservation consultation; water plants only when needed.
• Somehow this watery thought came whizzing by in this pile — “Everyone who terrifies you is sixty-five percent water. And everyone you love is made of stardust.” Finn Butler
