Water agency declares May Water Awareness Month

Will B. Water will return this summer to remind Tahoe Basin residents that there will never be enough water to waste.

The award-winning campaigner will spearhead the conservation efforts of the South Tahoe Public Utility District, whose directors last week proclaimed May as Water Awareness Month.

The month-long educational effort is part of a statewide California Water Awareness campaign by water agencies, cities, farm bureaus and other organizations.

In the resolution adopted last week, the district’s board of directors designated water as the state’s most precious natural resource, noted the importance of conserving water in light of the six years of drought from 1987 to 1993, and cited successful efforts by California residents to decrease their use of water.

In adopting the resolution, the district’s board adopted a motto that urges its customers to “Use Water Wisely – It’s A Way of Life.”
