Voluntary water conservation in Friendswood
— reported in KHOU CBS Channel 11
Monday’s rain is too little, too late for the city of Friendswood.
The summer-like drought in the middle of winter has created a call for people to voluntarily conserve water.
Most of the fields and yards have gone brown around Friendswood.
The dryness got city officials thinking. If residents use more water than normal during the winter, what would happen to the supply when spring and summer come?
City officials are urging residents to water yards in the early morning or late evening.
They would also like for everyone to follow April Waller’s example and only wash full loads of laundry.
City leaders said the water supply is fine, but light rains like on Monday might not be enough to keep it that way. That is why they are asking residents for help.
I wonder if this is a sign of things to come in this year for all of us.
