Water is everywhere. We use it daily and it’s the key ingredient in making almost everything that we use. If you are a regular reader of our blog, you know that everyday objects such as paper, gasoline, shoes, t-shirts, phones, and jeans require a surprising amount of water to manufacture. It probably doesn’t surprise you to know that making beer also requires a lot of water. For breweries, water is everything.
Did you know that about 95% of the water entering our homes goes down the drain? This can be attributed to leaving the tap on while brushing your teeth, over-watering plants, or using leaky faucets. Regardless, it is important to become more involved in reducing our water usage, as water is a limited resource that shouldn’t be taken for granted.
With the upcoming Day Without Water on October 10, San Jose Water is really looking at the value of water in our lives. We use it every single day, whether it’s to drink, clean, or cook. But have you ever wondered what else we need water for?
