Lake Mead supplies 22 million people with their only source of water. Water experts believe Lake Mead could be dry by 2021.
“Global demand for freshwater will exceed supply by 40 percent by 2030, according to the Water Resources Group, with potentially calamitous implications for business, society and the environment. When compared with the more gradual and indirect implications of climate change, water scarcity seems not only a more immediate issue, but also a more manageable one.”
KPMG Sustainable Insight, 10/12
To conserve water, masses of individuals must be motivated to permanently change their water-use behaviors. Even with increasing scarcity and cost, research (available on request) shows behavioral changes have a “shelf life” of less than a year. Structural water savings from low-flow toilets, faucet/shower restrictors, etc. have flat-lined; consequently, substantial future water savings can only be achieved by permanently changing individual user behavior on a societal scale.
