Celebrating Water Awareness in May

Next month, Zone 7 will continue its tradition of celebrating May as Water Awareness Month. This year, Zone 7 will coordinate with local retailers to host a number of public outreach and educational activities for this year’s Water Awareness Month. Activities include sponsoring the Bringing Back the Natives Garden Tour, featuring drought-tolerant gardens in the valley. Information will be provided to attendees on ways to save water inside and outside the home. The City of Livermore is also hosting a garden workshop to provide information on easy ways to convert your garden. Learn more at www.bringingbackthenatives.net. In addition Zone 7 will be recognizing the winning students of the Zone 7 Water Awards, which were selected during the 2018 Alameda County Science and Engineering Fair, at the May Board of Directors Meeting.

As reported at the April* 18, 2018 Board of Director’s meeting, Zone 7 expects to meet 100% of the 2018 demand despite the lack-luster rainy season. Even if conditions turn critically dry in 2019, Zone 7 expects to meet 2019 demands. Zone 7 also expects to meet demands in 2020-2022 assuming average precipitation conditions over that period. The ability to continue to meet demands is due to the diversified portfolio of water supplies Zone 7 has built over the years and the ongoing conservation efforts that have resulted in a continuation of reduced demand compared to 2013 levels. While demand has increased since the drought, it is still lower than 2013 demands. The collective impacts of drought, climate change, increased population demands, more stringent environmental restrictions, and potential natural disasters make it clear that conservation will continue to be a feature of life in California.
