The Future of Water Conservation

April 5, 2016

That's according to a new Secure Water Act Report by the Bureau of Reclamation. During the rest of the century, the report forecasts a tempreature rise of five to seven degrees fahrenheit, and precipation will increase in the northwestern and north-central parts of the western US, while decreasing over the southwest and south-central areas.
