  • Reflection Question
    Water Fix Leaky Faucets
    Fixing leaky faucets is one of the tasks that we can easily put off until later. Good job on completing this action! How will you use the momentum from completing this action to increase your water efficiency?

    Sumit Tiwary 10/23/2018 1:20 AM
    I'll monitor my water bills after fixing the leakages as well as installing the low flow taps and then compare my usage month over month and spread the word about not only saving some money but also using less water which is better for all of us.
  • Reflection Question

    How can your region/household prepare for changing water situations in order to become more resilient?

    Sumit Tiwary 10/23/2018 1:19 AM
    I have installed low flow shower head as well as replaced most of my taps with low flow taps to minimize the water wastage. Even though it is low flow, the work gets done

     Poor ground water quality is a big reason for our expenses as we have to use a good filteratiin and water purification and softener system to use water for our daily needs
