I live in Kingman Arizona, but I was raised in So. California during the drought in the 70's, so I'm one of those who already do many of what is described in this book for decades.the rest I learned when I moved to Arizona. You want to save water, this is a good book to start with.
Water is one of this earth’s most precious resources. Our world is one large network of water flow, and we should each do our part to conserve the water and keep it clean! While we think about the oceans being full of billions of gallons of water, it’s important to remember that we cannot drink salt water. When you look solely at the amount of drinkable water on the planet, only 1% of the water on our planet is water we could drink. It’s important that we preserve this water as much as possible.
Think of how you use water each day. Are you careful with it, to use only what you need? Do you ensure that the water is not polluted or contaminated as it heads back out into the world?
These practical tips will help you learn how to use water more efficiently and become a custodian of the water which is entrusted to your care. Some of the suggestions are easy while others might involve a bit more work. No matter where you currently fall in the scale of saving water, you'll find something here to give a try!

Since this book was in the gardening section I hoped for more information on saving water in the garden. There were many good ideas for whole house saving that I had heard before and forgotten.
This book is recommended if you've avoided reading all those tips for saving water on your utility bill or websites or green emails but now you must catch up as part of your community service. Lisa Shea has thoughtfully gathered it all up in one book so you can binge on a lifetime's worth of tips.
Of course, I've dutifully read all those tips and then read this book. Pain! Agony! I'm so OLD!
And don't forget to shut off your faucet drips!
Excellent tips to saving water and in our world we need to save as much as we can or their will come a day when we have none.
Just your basics with no additional info. Like add bleach to your rain barrel to keep mosquitos from breeding. That's about as much info as you get about any idea in here. It took about ten minutes to read as well.
This book has some good ideas, mostly common sense really.
Good can do information
