Description:

Humans depend on freshwater for drinking as well as for domestic, agricultural, and industrial uses. Careless and wasteful use of this renewable but high-demand natural resource contributes to water depletion. This video segment provides a look at a house in Tuscon, Arizona that is equipped with water conservation devices that cut its household water consumption in half. There is also discussion of xeriscape landscaping techniques and a program to install low-flow toilets in Los Angeles, California. The segment is two minutes fifty-seven seconds in length. A background essay and discussion questions are included.
