If you are an experienced water conservation coordinator, and have been doing BMP reporting for many years, then perhaps the information below will ring true for you or you might have other timely advice to add. However, if you are new to water efficiency or have assumed a new position – one in which you will be responsible for BMP reporting soon – then please read my story and the advice that follows.

Big Bear Lake, CA

Monday, July 27, 2015

Good deeds should be rewarded. That’s the sentiment behind the North Shore Trading Company’s first ever “Go Blue-Get Green” water conservation drawing to be held next month. The drawing will be held August 31 for a $100 gift card to the store. Local residents and homeowners just need to bring their bill to the business between now and August 30 to show they have saved at least 25% over last year’s use for the same summer months. North Shore Trading Company is located at 39130 North Shore Drive in Fawnskin next to the post office.
