Let’s see… 43 days of 100 plus temperatures… And no rain. It’s been a crazy summer so far!

Not only has the weather been creating a high demand on the power grid, it’s also placing a huge demand on the water systems.

The city of Shreveport today asked residents to voluntarily conserve water. That way, there won’t be a need for any mandatory measures.

According to the press release from the city, you can help by following these tips:

  1. Check household faucets for leaks. A faucet with even a slow drip takes 10 to 25 gallons of water.
  2. Keep showers to 5 minutes or less in length.
  3. Use a broom to sweep your driveway, garage, or sidewalk instead of using water.
  4. Water your lawn in the evening or in the early morning to avoid evaporation.
  5. Use water only when you need it. Don’t leave water running, be sure to turn it off when you are finished.
