Huell Howser Discusses New Water Supplies for the SouthBay in
Water Reliability 2020 Program
Local celebrity Huell Howser has taught you all about California’s Gold, now hear about California’s Blue — water. Join Howser and West Basin Municipal Water District (West Basin) on a journey to water reliability in your own backyard.
After years of low rain fall and worsening environmental conditions, our water reserve levels have declined drastically. It is time for us to take preventative measures to save one of California’s most vital resources. Water Reliability 2020 will educate the communities about the importance of water conservation, water recycling and ocean-water desalination. In the next ten years, West Basin will reduce imported water usage from 66 percent to 33 percent by recycling 70 million gallons of water a day, maximizing conservation efforts and implementing the first environmentally responsible ocean-water desalination facility. By providing more reliable, locally-controlled water supplies at a cost equal to importing more water, while using less energy, West Basin is planning and investing in your future.
Supporters from around the South Bay, like Howser, have pledged their support for new local and reliable water supplies. You can pledge your support, sign up for a tour of the recycled water facility and learn more about Water Reliability 2020 by visiting http://www.westbasin.org Remember, every drop counts!
