Last Saturday Crescenta Valley Water District opened its doors at the Glenwood Avenue facility for Water Awareness Day. District employees flipped hamburgers and made sno-cones for community members who enjoyed a relaxing afternoon learning about what they can do to conserve water.
This is an annual awareness event. Each year the water available for Californians continues to dwindle while demand rises. The battle between conservation and consumer has been going on for years, but this year the choice is to save or pay — really pay.
CVWD supplies its customers in part from ground water but must also import water from Foothill Municipal Water District which receives its supply from the Metropolitan Water District. In April, the MWD told its distributors that they would be receiving less water.
