What will you do in this drought?

Can we survive the heat? Recently saw this image that really fit our irrigation industry, but how much longer will the drought continue and will we continue to see more and more water rationing and in some cases total bans on outside water use?  What are you doing to educate your customers and more importantly our government leaders?  We all need to step up and show how SMART irrigation can save water and provide improved health to turf and landscapes.
