Test Your Water Sense

Take The WaterSense QuizFortunately, Seattle is not dealing with the crippling drought experienced in 2015. However, since water is such a precious resource, we feel it’s always a good time to test your water sense.

We originally shared the following post in August 2014.

In Seattle, we are not facing a water shortage. Here at RainBank, we take aging water systems, water usage, storage and rainwater collection seriously.  But, that doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun while being mindful about water.

Who hasn’t tried the fun quizzes on Buzzfeed – like “How Many US States Have You Visited?” or “How Well Do You Know the Solar System?”

The EPA has joined the quiz frenzy with a WaterSense Quiz, a fun game to test your knowledge and share some facts about water.

The object of the game is to move the water-efficiency hero, aptly named Flo, through water pipes and answer water-efficiency questions while avoiding water-wasting monsters such as Sogosaurus and Drainiac.

It may seem like child’s play, but if you try the EPA’s new interactive online quiz, you’ll be sure to learn a few facts about water usage.
