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.
