Whether in the classroom teaching students or out in the community talking with residents, the Water Division, through the Water Conservation Program, is constantly looking for new and better ways to spread the message of conservation.
The Water Division is active in the community through our water education program, which includes Water Conservation Program classroom presentations, outreach educational information, speaker’s bureau presentations, and water tours. Community educational outreach events allow us an opportunity to keep customers in the Fresno service area up to date on water use information, and provide the customer a forum to discuss concerns or to offer recommendations.
COMMUNITY WATER NEWS HIGHLIGHT
We receive wonderful submissions from students, customers and others in the community about water news they would like considered for this site. Submissions are reviewed and evaluated to determine if they should be posted.
Fresno Conservation landscape specialists are mentoring CART (Center for Advanced Research and Technology) students for a project they will display at the Water-wise Plant Exchange in April. The mentoring included a tour of the Clovis Botanical Garden, which grows only water-wise plants. The Water-wise Plant exchange will be held April 30, 2016 at the Fresno State Nursery east of Barstow and Chestnut. Photos of past events are below.
