One of the biggest challenges facing our planet in this century and centuries to come is the threat of desertification.  It is up to each person to make a difference by responsible water use.  Even fixing your sprinkler can help to relieve this problem and help protect a precious resource: fresh water.  First off, though, what’s desertification?  Well according to Wikipedia:

Desertification is a type of land degradation in which a relatively dry land region becomes increasingly arid, typically losing its bodies of water as well as vegetation and wildlife. It is caused by a variety of factors, such as climate change and human activities. Desertification is a significant global ecological and environmental problem.The Princeton University Dictionary defines it as “the process of fertile land transforming into desert typically as a result of deforestation, drought or improper/inappropriate agriculture.” [READ MORE]  If you’re thinking, how much difference can sprinkler repair make in a dry place like Arizona.  To put it succinctly, a lot.  Consider if you will.  A broken sprinkler can waste as much as 100 gallons of water if it ruptures. And drought is getting to be a big problem here.

Sprinkler Repair in Prescott

Prescott is a fast growing population center, however, with such growth comes some challenges.  One of the biggest ones is availability of water resources.  Lake Mead is at 39% of it’s capacity and may not be able to generate electrical power as soon as 2017.  Lake Powell is down to 30%, and even lakes like Roosevelt have lowered because of water demand.  As the population increases so does the demand on the water supplies.  Fresh water is a rare, and precious resource.  Sprinkler repair can help in a small way to protect this resource.
