Colorado’s residents are being asked to make a pledge — a pledge that can make a significant difference in the state.
The pledge is to save just 22 gallons of water a day as part of the Water22 initiative.
22 gallons a day adds up, especially if everyone participates.
According to the Water22 website:
There are easy actions you can take to keep our water clean and save 22 gallons or more every day. That adds up to over 8,000 gallons of savings per year. If every Coloradan does their part, we can save close to 48 billion gallons. That’s almost 150,000 acre-feet, or the size of Horsetooth Reservoir in Fort Collins or Green Mountain Reservoir near Kremmling!
The site lists 22 ways to save water — advice that’s good for all water users in the West.
