Water Conservation: A Landfill Case Study

"When you implement a Water Conservation Program, you are contributing to the public good."  ---  Steve Clark, PhD                   

Steve Clark was right in his assessment; conserving water concerns and affects all aspects of society. Modern society uses water on a scale undreamt of a mere hundred years ago. As communities expand and merge into mega-cities, the drain on the water infrastructure becomes insupportable. Aquifers are being drained at a rate far higher than they can refill and it's estimated that, within the next two generations, 25 percent of the population that depends on them will begin experiencing significant problems.

Water Conservation Issues: The Drought, Produce Farmers in the West, & X-Hesion Pro

As the drought continues to restrict and financially burden the west, produce farmers struggle to keep their crops producing and their businesses afloat.

This past spring, California produced the annual water allotment wherein the winter runoff was parceled out to larger farms, those who provided more produce to the state, and then was dispersed to the smaller or family owned farms. With the trifling water portions that most produce farmers received, some are looking for alternative ways to conserve water, hopefully making it possible to keep their farms afloat during the scorching summer months.

Reducing Water and Improving Dust Control for Produce Farmers in the West: A New Solution.

The ongoing drought in the west is causing more problems than just a lack of rain for farmers. California set a new “low water” mark measurement (California Department of Water Resources). The statewide electronic reading of the snowpack’s water content stands at 5 percent of average, or 5 percent of the 28-inch average. The lowest previous reading since 1950 was 25 percent of average, so Water Year 2015 is the driest winter in California’s written record.
