Did you know that there have been water shortages in Kodiak? In fact there have been times in Kodiak’s past where seafood processing, a mainstay of our local economy, has been curtailed due to a shortage of water in our reservoirs. Teach your family the value of water conservation at home by following this tip: When washing dishes by hand – and that’s the most efficient way – use the least amount of detergent possible. This minimizes the amount of rinse water needed. You’ll save anywhere from 50 to 150 gallons a month. Imagine the water saved if every household followed this advice. Lets conserve one of Kodiak’s most important natural resources.
The Kodiak Chamber of Commerce believes that conservation starts at home.
