Stop By The Green Fest Saturday
CCWD's water conservation experts will be at the CCCAR Green Fest at Heather Farms on Saturday, June 13.
There will be a 5K run in the morning, and then a community festival. Please stop by our booth and ask any questions you have about conserving water and CCWD's Water Management Program. You can also pick up a free shower timer.
Here's a link to the event:
Our Water Meter Video Proves Popular
You never know what to expect when you post a video on You Tube. But when we posted our video on "How To Read Your Water Meter" about a month ago, we hoped a few people would find it helpful.
Well, the three-minute video featuring Water Conservation Specialist Bob Eagle has now been seen by more than 600 people.
That's more attention than we expected.
Hopefully the video, and our online water use calculator, helps you determine your water use in real time.
Local Websites That Can Help You With Your Water Conservation Plan
CCWD water is served to more than 550,000 people in central and eastern Contra Costa County.
If you live in a city that distributes water and bills you through the city, you may have a different conservation plan than CCWD's. Here are links to the cities that have their own versions of the water conservation plan. Wherever you live, the idea is the same: "Save Water & Beat The Drought."
City of Martinez
City of Pittsburg
City of Antioch
Diablo Water District
Golden State Water Company (Bay Point)
Want Even More Water Conservation Information?
The state has developed a neat website called "Save Our H2O." If you enjoy baseball, you'll get a kick out of a water conservation video with former Giants Manager Dusty Baker. There is also a neat water use calculator that can show you where you're using water.
Also, you can follow CCWD on "Twitter" We update it nearly everyday.
