INSIDE LINCOLN MARCH 2014
BY DEBBIE BROWN
INSIDE LINCOLN
 A 
t this time of year, we usual-ly expect to see green land-scapes, neighbors planting flowers to brighten up their yards and rain puddles thatbarely seem to dry out beforethe next rain comes. However,this year, it seems that all we seeare dry fields, water restrictionsand a drought that has createda thin layer of dust to hang overour state.  We’re all looking for ways toconserve water, and if you livedthrough the California droughtof the late ’70s, you may remember some tips from thattime. Below are 15 water-saving suggestions that, if everyone would observe, will help us getthrough this difficult time witha lot more ease. Hopefully thesenew lifestyle changes for today  will become your habits of tomorrow. These tips are fromthe EPA, Redwood City Public Works, Ace Plumbing andsagethrive.com.
1. Water conservation is some-thing that requires the assistanceof everyone in the family.
To getkids into the act of water con-servation, assign a week foreach of your children to “policethe rest of the family. It willteach the kids about the impor-tance of water conservationand allow them to be the “boss”of mom and dad once in a while(even if for a brief time eachday).
 Water conservation can be easy to carry out

2. When you begin yournormal morning or nightroutines, think about theorder in which you do yourroutines.
 We all know thatit takes a while for the water to warm up so usethe hot water side of yourfaucet to wet your tooth-brush, and as needed, turnthe water back on to rinse.By the time you wash yourface, the water will be warmer and you’ll haveavoided wasting water by letting it run to reach thedesired temperature.

Lincoln residents were excited to see a storm bring in lots of rain for aboutthree days in early February. However, this one storm was not enough to alle-viate the drought and we must all do our part to help conserve.
