• Water Management District Announces Water Conservation Education Initiative

    ‘Save Water, Go Blue’ Helps Residents to Continue to Save Water

    The Monterey Peninsula Water Management District (MPWMD) is excited to announce the debut of its Save Water, Go Blue conservation initiative. The initiative will be focused on thanking the residents, businesses, municipalities and school districts on the Monterey Peninsula for their dedication to water conservation and to educate everyone in the area about the need to continue their water wise practices. “Go Blue” references the popular “Go Green” saying and urges all to conserve water whenever possible.

    The residents of the Monterey Peninsula should be extremely proud of their conservation efforts,” commented MPWMD Water Demand Manager Stephanie Locke. “ Currently, we are just below 60 gallons per person, per day which is one of the lowest in the state. Our Save Water, Go Blue initiative will help keep those practices top of mind during our typically dry fall season.”

    Outreach will consist of signage and a series of events titled Drought Days where District residents can easily pick up water saving devices and fixtures. In addition, a series of conservation workshops will be held and attendees will have the opportunity to learn about water wise landscaping including greywater and rainwater harvesting, residential and commercial rebate programs and other tips to help conserve water. The initiative will also feature print, radio and television placement.

    We’ve done a great job so far,” continued Locke. “We want everyone to do their part, including the cities and schools. It’s going to take a team effort to help us through this water crisis and we are urging everyone to pull together and push toward our common goal of greater water conservation.”
