It’s no secret water and sewer utilities across the United States are suffering from a lack of funding for needed projects. Of course, the timing makes the situation even more detrimental as we are now in an era of increasing water and wastewater system failures coupled with droughts. Water conservation and the benefits of saving this precious resource can be achieved in a number of ways.
