Working Toward Conserving
Please don't use drinking water to water your yard. The amount of cost, man power and facility maintenance it takes to make one gallon of drinking water is overwhelming. We have created this page in hopes to help educate our residents and alleviate some of the stresses of the Bonita Creek Water System. By capturing as much rainfall as possible from buildings and structures, we can use that water to irrigate landscaping during dry times and prevent erosion during times of high precipitation. By using rainwater for washing laundry, flushing toilets and pressure washing houses and vehicles, we can further contribute to water conservation by limiting the use of drinking water and reducing the energy used to pump that water from the municipal supply. The combination of these effects can greatly contribute to the conservation of our most precious natural resource - water.
