What are some things our government is doing to try and use less water in America?

    Conserving water must be undertaken by all of us if we are to reduce our impact as Americans. The EPA  has a division that works to inform citizens of the importance of water conservation. It has a partnership with Watersense, a line of water efficient products. The EPA offers rebates for buying certain Watersense products such as shower heads and faucets. It also works to educate people about the money saving benefits of water conservation, and how to design your bathroom to be more water friendly. Since treating water requires electricity, the EPA claims the following: if “1 percent of American homes replaced their older, inefficient toilets with WaterSense labeled models, the country would save more than 38 million kWh of electricity—enough to supply more than 43,000 households electricity for one month.”

    There are actually many groups and organizations that work with the government to try to make the most efficient policies that would help conserve water. This has also expanded to our schools, where they now teach kids at a young age to conserve their water. I think if we combine the research being done with educating the public about the need for conserving water, then we could be very successful in the future with this dilemma.
