An El Dorado Hills woman is taking big steps to save water during the drought, rigging up her home to the point where she’s cut her water use by more than half.
Marie Levy has built her own water-saving system from simple products you can find at any hardware store. She’s even figured out a way to reuse water more than once.
“Every year in California it’s dry,” she said.
Levy doesn’t hide her lawn watering during the drought. In fact, she’s proud of it.
“It’s about one load of wash to water my grass for an hour,” she said. And I can do that every day of the week and not run out of water.”
She’s discovered a way to save water wasted every day and put it to good use. She built her own system without any professional experience.
