Earth Day is on April 22nd
! As Sacramento residents, the Department of Utilities would like to ask you to be responsible water users in honor of Earth Day.
Perhaps no other natural resource is as important to us as water. With so many competing yet equally important needs, we must learn to manage our available water resources properly. In the state of California alone, nearly 20% of all energy consumption goes toward moving, cleaning and heating water.
As it has become increasingly clear, the value of water conservation has enormous benefits to local economies, the environment, and even our global climate. In heavily populated drought-plagued states, the benefits of conservation are incalculable; by being mindful of water use, we have an opportunity to save energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The bottom line: water conservation not only benefits California, it benefits the entire planet.
That is why we, as residents of City of Sacramento, need to do our part to conserve water.
