Seven New Year water saving resolutions for 2011

Posted by: Saving Water SA (Cape Town, South Africa) – partnered with Water Rhapsody conservation systems – 31 December 2010

South Africa is already on the list of the 30 driest countries in the world, and 2010 has not been a good year for water in South Africa, with drought posing serious challenges in parts of the country.

Tens of thousands of migrants are pouring into Cape Town forcing authorities to rethink the city’s water supply strategy.

Climate forecasts do not bode well for the Western Cape’s water supply. The region is likely to become warmer and drier with reduced water in the rivers.

Pressure is mounting on our potable water supplies, so it’s a good time to implement some water saving measures around the home.

Here are seven great water saving resolutions for the new year:

  1. Don’t flush toilets with drinking water.
  2. Water gardens with grey water.
  3. Harvest rainwater from roofs of homes.
  4. Use harvested rainwater throughout the home (not only in the garden).
  5. Clarify swimming pool backwash and return it to the pool.
  6. Only flush the least amount of water to clear toilet pans.
  7. Wash cars with rainwater.
