Area Resident Conserving Water

Days of intense heat and no rain makes area water very scarce. So many people in our area are trying to come up with ways to conserve water while still getting their daily chores done.

Bowling Green resident, Holly Williams said she’s been doing “the little things” to keep more water from being used at her home. She waters her lawn for shorter periods of time and rations the water usage in her kitchen.

“Sometimes instead of using the dishwasher at all, I’ll just fill up the sink with water and just wash the dishes as I go along, so I’m not using the dishwasher, and I can use the dish water all day long,” Williams said.

    The lady who uses the same dish water in her sink all day to do dishes might be conserving water, but she is endangering her health and that of her family. Dirty water should never be used to wash dishes. After a short setting time water becomes room temperature and should be discarded. She could use left over rinse water to water some of her plants.
