Water is the New Oil


According to landscape architect Arash Izadi in an article published in the November-December issue of Water Efficiency Magazine, it is more important than ever to continue efforts to help others understand the need and importance of conservation.

“This article serves as a quick-and-dirty look at water conservation. It will inform about the health of our current water supply, give a brief overview on important water legislation, review a variety of strategies and techniques for irrigation and stormwater management, and conclude with real-world applications,”  writes Arash Izadi.

“At the opposite end of this discussion, however, is energy. Pulling at precious water resources is the need for more energy. Water is needed to generate energy. Energy is needed to deliver water. Getting these two limited resources to coexist without giving one up for the other is tricky.”
