The nearly 40,000 daily travelers that pass through the San Diego International Airport will have the opportunity to learn about the benefits of conserving water thanks to 19 works of art created by local children, according to the Mission Valley News.
In association with the organization Waste No Water and the city's public utilities department, thousands of travelers will learn important conservation methods like fixing plumbing leaks in a creative and innovative way. The city hopes that these colorful creations will spread the message of water conservation out of San Diego and into a more expanded audience.
It seems that San Diegans have seen the benefits of fixing leaky pipes and using less water on their water bills. From 2010 to 2011, water usage went down 7 percent, according to local FOX affiliate KSWB.
With CBS reporting that 63 percent of the nation is in some stage of drought, it is important for the whole country to take a lesson from San Diego and spread the word about the benefits of conserving water for your water bill and the environment.
