Officials urge residents to begin water-saving habits
MURPHY (January 25, 2018) They’re hard to predict, but droughts have been part of the Texas landscape since records have been kept, and there’s currently no reliable way to predict when they might happen, how long they might last, and how severe they might be.
That uncertainty is the principal reason that officials encourage residents and business owners to put water conservation measures into practice year-round.
“At this point of the year, we are not facing a call for restrictive conservation measures,” says Tim Rogers, Murphy’s Public Services Director. “Nevertheless, we are committed to increasing our educational efforts to reduce water use, and we’re urging residents to detect and repair water leaks around the house.”
With that in mind, the following ten tips are offered for saving water at homes or businesses.
Widespread implementation of these tips can minimize the need for further conservation efforts and perhaps delay the onset of more restrictive measures.
“Water is a precious resource. It can’t be manufactured, so conserving what we have and using it wisely is the only option open to us,” concluded Rogers.
