Girl Scouts Save Water

Girl Scouts in troop 8517 in Wichita Falls are working to save water!

Juniors from Girl Scout Troop 8517, based out of Wichita Falls, are working on receiving their Bronze Award. In order to receive the award, the girls are informing their community about saving water. They want the public to help them save water!
 
The girl scouts believe it is important to save water so Texoma's water situation won't get out of hand, especially because of the drought.
 
The girl scouts compiled a list of tips the public can use to save water.
They're asking the public…

  • You can save water and time by brushing your teeth in the shower?
  • You can save water by turning off the water while you lather (wash) your hands?
  • You can keep a bucket of water in the shower while you wait for it to warm up or run and then use this water to flush your toilet or water your plants?
