A member agency’s positive response to the Drought

Friday, November 06, 2015
During this 4TH year of drought, a lot of customers are experiencing drought fatigue, but so are the water providers that serve them. These have been trying years, with staffing and resources spread thin. Water agencies have risen to the task though, developing innovative outreach campaigns and implementing new water efficiency programs. All of your efforts deserve to be highlighted, but since there isn’t enough time and space to do this, I’m going to instead highlight one agency’s efforts. Located in the northern Sierra foothills, the Placer County Water Agency has been successful in their efforts to encourage customers and staff to keep up the good work. I hope their story will inspire you to hang in there too, as we continue to hope that several years of rain and snowfall are in the near future!
