With her family watching, Board President, Bob Kiley presented Emily with a Proclamation from the District thanking her for artwork.  Emily’s artwork will be featured on the inside label of YLWD’s bottled water for the next year.

BOARD CALLS FOR ENHANCED WATER USE EFFICIENCY EFFORTS

The Yorba Linda Water District Board of Directors today voted unanimously to ask customers to voluntarily cut their water use as a result of the state’s critical water supply conditions.

California has experienced several years of drought-level conditions, including a drought on the Colorado River, now going into its 14th consecutive year, with 2014 expected to exceed 2007 as the driest year on record in the state. These facts, in addition to the State of Emergency due to Drought Conditions, issued by Governor Brown in January, have prompted the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) to declare a Water Supply Alert condition to its 26 member agencies and the 19 million people they serve in six counties.

“This is a statewide problem and we have to do our part,” said Board President, Bob Kiley.   “Thankfully due to the foresight of the regional water purveyors and investments made over the last decade or so, we’re not in dire straits, just yet. But we don’t know how long this drought will last, and every drop counts.”

To assist customers with water use efficiency, Metropolitan has increased programs aimed at providing additional rebate incentives for Southern Californians to purchase water-saving devices and help reach the Brown Administration’s goal of a statewide per-capita water use reduction of 20 percent.
