From the California Department of Water Resources (DWR):
“As drought-parched California moves into another long, hot summer, the Department of Water Resources (DWR) and other agencies are observing May as ‘Save Our Water’ month as proclaimed by Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. Save Our Water — a campaign of DWR and the Association of California Water Agencies (ACWA) — has launched a statewide media campaign utilizing Public Service Announcements, radio, billboards and social media urging Californians to save water every day.
“Inventor David Malcolm always believed the low-flow showerhead he created would do well. But even he has been surprised by the boost in business his tiny Coarsegold company — High Sierra Showerheads — has been getting lately.”
From the San Jose Mercury News, in a commentary by Senate Majority Leader Ellen M. Corbett:
“Although precious rain recently fell on our local communities, I have had scores of conversations over the last few weeks and months with local residents at farmers’ markets, town halls and community events about a topic that remains at the forefront of our minds: California’s drought.”
“People who have ditched their lawns in favor of water-sparing landscapes reel off the benefits with hardly a pause. Lower water bills. More wildlife. Less maintenance. And not least, a feeling of satisfaction.”
“As water agencies wrestle with California’s drought emergency, and lawmakers pass bills seeking relief from a third consecutive dry year in the state, another institution, the public university system, is continuing to play a critical role in water conservation.”
