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.
