Drinking Water Week

During Drinking Water Week is a perfect time to teach kids about the value of water! Play eye spy, do a puzzle or find your way through a maze with children’s activities that you can find at awwa.org/Events-Education/Drinking-Water-Week/DWW-Materials.

“The long-term viability of our water resources rests in the hands of our children,” said Secretary and Board Director Andy Ramirez, on behalf of the Board of Directors. “Helping children understand the role water plays in our everyday lives sets the groundwork for a sustainable water future.”

Save water by freshening up the mulch in your garden

Save water by freshening up the mulch in your garden this spring! Natural mulch reduces moisture loss in soil, reduces weed growth, and puts the finishing touch on a California-friendly garden.

On behalf of the Water District, Board Secretary Andy Ramirez reminds customers that “Though outdoor watering makes up the majority of a home’s water use, by using California native plants and conservation, this will help you save money on your next water bill”. #ConservationTips #BCVWD
