85% of California is experiencing some level of drought, this time last year it was 12%. Marin County has mandatory water restrictions in place now, enforcement will begin May 1.
Here are 4 easy ways you can help conserve water:
1.Turn off your automatic sprinkler system and water outside only when you need to
2.Put a shut-off nozzle on your garden hose, Marin Water gives them out to their customers for free
3.Wash your car at a carwash that recycles water, instead of at home
4.In the house, wait to run washing machines and dishwashers when they’re full
