The rainy season is Southern California is November to April and during these months we see rain causing freeway havok. But where does all that water go. Well, with gutters, drains, and rivers, it is all flushed out to sea. While the residents of the area need to pump in water from the San Juaquin valley, the Owens valley and the Colorado River to meet their needs.
To lower our water usage, an efficient idea is to collect rain water, from our roofs and rain gutters, filter it and reuse it. Water tanks on the side of homes can store the water and reuse it when necessary. During the rainy season, this helps lower our water demands and lowers our impact on the environment.
