Water desalinination: http://environment.about.com/od/biodiversityconservation/a/desalination.htm
– the most expensive form of fresh water
– desalinated water costs at least five times as much to harvest
– Ocean water is filled with living creatures, and most of them are lost in the process of desalination
– salty residue left over from desalination must be disposed of properly, not just dumped back into the sea

100 ways to conserve water: http://wateruseitwisely.com/100-ways-to-conserve/

  1. Run your clothes washer and dishwasher only when they are full. You can save up to 1,000 gallons a month.
  2. Use a broom instead of a hose to clean your driveway and sidewalk and save water every time.
  3. Shorten your shower by a minute or two and you\’ll save up to 150 gallons per month.
  4. Put food coloring in your toilet tank. If it seeps into the toilet bowl without flushing, you have a leak. Fixing it can save up to 1,000 gallons a month.
  5. Use a water-efficient showerhead. They\’re inexpensive, easy to install, and can save you up to 750 gallons a month.
  6. Use a commercial car wash that recycles water.
  7. Turn off the water while brushing your teeth and save 25 gallons a month.
  8. If your dishwasher is new, cut back on rinsing. Newer models clean more thoroughly than older ones.
