Seattle's not always rolling in water.
The city known for it's rainy reputation actually receives only 36 inches of precipitation in an average year. Surprisingly enough Miami, Boston, Atlanta and New York all receive more annual rainfall than Seattle. Western Washington has many overcast days with drizzling rain, but the total amount of precipitation is not that great.
Our summers are often relatively dry. Seattle usually receives .63 inches of rain for the entire month of July. Unfortunately, that's also during our peak demand season when people use the most water. That's why water conservation is an important part of managing our water usage. Can you think of ways to use less water?
