Many people saw this coming but most of them did nothing to help prevent it. Water waste throughout California is common especially within residential and Government sights.

(1) Monitoring water pressure and use within the home In order to change how citizens use their water and to know how much they are using; they should start watching how much water their household uses by installing a meter and checking previous water usage bills. With the installation of these meters the citizens can start to see how much water they are using each day and hopefully give them an idea of how much water is being wasted every day.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
