Will Low Lakes Levels Affect Your Drinking Water?

Nov 16, 2010

It is a trend we hope to see change. Low lake levels in Californian could potentially have an impact on drinking water sources, even producing shortages for some areas. According to one website, there are 5 lakes currently being monitored. Lake Elsinore is the only lake who stayed at the same level, yet the other 4 lakes have decreased in level recently. Another article online pointed out the low levels of Lake Mead and the reservoir there. The article states that it “is at about 40 percent of capacity. Federal officials say that by next month [October], the water level could reach its lowest point since 1937, when the lake was first filled.”

When climate changes occur, precipitation patterns change, soil dries out, and water levels decrease, they affect our daily life. Drinking water is essential for humans to sustain life – and no one wants to think about something so important becoming so scarce. We could be forced to use less if this came to be, or we could help prevent the shortages now; by using home water systems or water coolers with RWI Water Systems technology. RWI Water Systems is the latest in green and the best in good drinking water. Many people are already using reverse osmosis water systems in their homes, but this tends to waste a lot of water. One consumer site reports that most RO systems waste about 20 gallons of water to produce 1 gallon of drinking water. Look into an affordable and eco-friendly way to decrease your water footprint and prepare to have your home supplying safe and clean drinking water for years to come.
