Two things are certain in this life. We all need clean air to breath...and we all need clean water to drink! With all the drought conditions around the country, communities around the country, should follow the example set by the residents of Albuquerque, New Mexico, and conserve water.

Water conversation  is everybody's business! 

I'm proud to live in a city that cares!  The American people have to set an example for the rest of the world, and conserve water.  Clean water is crucial for all of us, so there should not be any water wasted anywhere in the United States. 

The following newspaper article was written by John Fleck. a staff writer for the Albuquerque Journal, and the piece was published in the Albuquerque Journal on July, 17, 2012.  The title of the article reads;

"Water Use In City Is Down"

Sub-title reads;

Residents Conserving More Than They Did Last Year.

Albuquerque's water conservation success continued in the first six months of 2012, with use down 4 percent from the same period last year, according to a report from the metro area's water utility to state regulators. 

Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority customers used 15.6 billion gallons of water from January through June, down from 16.2 billion gallons for the same period in 2011, accouringly to the utility's latest water supply report to the New Mexico Office of the State Engineer. 

In 2011, Albuquerque metro area water consumption dropped below 150 gallons per person per day, a major milestone for conservation efforts that began in 1994 when residents used 252 gallons per person per day. 

Because of seasonal differences in water usage, we will have to wait until the end of the year to see how 2011 compares with last year's 150 gallon record, but preliminary indications suggest most of this year's improved conservation has come in reductions in outdoor watering, said Katherine Yuhas, head of the utility's water conservation program. 

 Yuhas said the utility has seen a significant increase in residents asking for water audits to help them learn how to conserve, from 80 in a typical June to 134 in June this year.  "We can hardly keep up with the requests that we're getting." she said.

More than 150 customers attended a "WaterSmart irrigation" training program Saturday, where they learned how to improve their outdoor watering efficiency and earned a $20 credit on their bill for attending."


Albuquerque, New Mexico is a sleepy one-horse town of more than 500,000 in population. 

With all the drought conditions around the country, ALL Americans MUST learn how to conserve water...IT'S A MATTER OF SURVIVAL!
