Where’s our water going? A lot of it is being wasted on your lawn, so if you’re going to water your landscaping, consider getting a rain barrel to gather water for irrigation, rather than wasting potable water from the faucet. In addition, though, lots of big businesses rely on easy access to inexpensive water to keep the engines running.
