• “Drive through” drought kits offered: Tues. 11/24 in Pacific Grove

    As part of their Save Water – Go Blue water conservation initiative, the Monterey Peninsula Water Management District (MPWMD) will hold a series of Drought Days Drive-Thu events. MPWMD residents and businesses are encouraged to visit one of the four event locations and receive free water-saving devices and fixtures.

    “During the holiday season, the Water Management District understands that everyone is pressed for time” commented MPWMD Water Demand Manager Stephanie Locke. “That’s why we designed this series of events to be as speedy as possible. Simply drive or walk up to one of our conservation stations and pick up your kit. It’s a quick and easy way to save water .”

    The events will be held throughout the Monterey Peninsula and will feature a “water conservation kit” consisting of leak detection kits, nozzles, faucet aerators, dish scrapers and other water saving devices.

    “Even though we are entering into Winter, conserving water is as important as ever,” continued Locke. “Long-range weather forecasts are for another dry season and picking up these items will not only help save water, but save money as well.”
