Hooked - (Stacia Naquin)
Updated: 10/11/2013 - I'm SO CLOSE to being able to do a pull-up. So my trainer introduced something new into my training.
Colorado Springs could see water restrictions for the third year in a row.
Reservoirs are about 25 percent below average and the mountain snowpack isn't enough to offset depleted water levels.
Colorado Springs Utilties says the state needs to see above average amounts of precipitation in the next 2 months to get back to normal. But weather experts say they're expecting moderate drought conditions to remain throughout the summer.
Springs Utilties is expected to make recommendations on water restrictions to the city council next month.

How You Can Conserve Water
Behavioral practices involve changing water use habits so that water is used more efficiently, thus reducing the overall water consumption in a home.
These practices require a change in behavior, not modifications in the existing plumbing or fixtures in a home.
Behavioral practices for residential water users can be applied both indoors in the kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room and outdoors.
If dishes are washed by hand, water can be saved by filling the sink or a dishpan with water rather than running the water continuously. An open conventional faucet lets about five gallons of water flow every two minutes.
Allowing the grass to grow slightly taller will reduce water loss by providing more ground shade for the roots and by promoting water retention in the soil. Growing plants that are suited to the area ("indigenous" plants) can save more than 50 percent of the water normally used to care for outdoor plants.
