Outdoor Water Use Conservation Tips

If you want to live in the southwestern United States, you need to know about water conservation because there isnít much rainfall or snowfall, especially in the two southernmost states of Arizona and New Mexico as well as the desert state of Nevada. The few rivers and streams that exist are already heavily tapped for irrigation and city water needs. It is irresponsible to insist on having a big Midwestern-style lawn when you are living in a drought-prone area in the southwest. Instead of trying to change the desert, embrace it and learn to live within it and appreciate its stark, dry beauty. Water conservation can be divided into indoor and outdoor water use, and this article concentrates on outdoor use.
