National Water A Flower Day

This Sunday, May 30, is National Water a Flower Day! Remember, choosing low water plants adds year-round color and can save up to 550 gallons of water a year! Get more conservation tips at bcvwd.org/water-conservation-tips. #ConservationTips #BCVWD

“Planting California-native flowers and shrubs in your garden uses less water, saves money and time, and brings all-season beauty to your neighborhood,” said Treasurer David Hoffman, on behalf of the Board of Directors.

Planning an outdoor project

Planning an outdoor project this spring? Call before you dig! Avoid underground hazards and damage to cables and pipes and by calling 811 at least 72 hours in advance of digging. Utility companies will come mark the location of their lines free of charge. Learn more at usanorth811.org. #NationalSafeDiggingMonth #CallBeforeYouDig #BCVWD

“Hitting an undergound utility line can cause extensive damage and put you, your family and your neighbors at risk. Calling before you dig is an easy step to take to keep yourself and your community safe,” said Treasurer David Hoffman, on behalf of the Board of Directors.

National Safety Month

BCVWD is ready to help in various emergencies, even if they do not directly impact water service. Last fall, during the 1,000-acre Sandalwood fire in Calimesa, BCVWD ensured the recharge ponds were as full as possible so that firefighting helicopters had access to the water if needed. #NationalSafetyMonth “Our ponds are not usually kept full at that time of year,” said Vice President David Hoffman, on behalf of the Board of Directors. “Our staff worked around the clock to ensure the largest water supply possible was immediately available to help fight the fire.”
