|OC Overwatering is Out campaign|
Water is Precious – We Need to Conserve! We live in a naturally dry area where water is an increasingly precious resource. Record drought conditions have depleted California’s water sources, making it more important than ever to reduce our water usage. Fortunately, there are many things people can do in and around the house to help conserve water.
Did you know that one of the biggest sources of water pollution is irrigation runoff from our yards and landscaped areas? Conserving water at home will save money and protect our beaches and ocean at the same time. Using water prudently and responsibly will help maintain a reliable supply of drinking water and ensure that fresh, clean water is around for future generations.
