Water Conservation Showcase 2015

The Water Conservation Showcase, organized by the Water Awareness Committee, at the 2015 Monterey County Fair hosted a continuous stream of visitors interested in learning about water conservation.

California Water Service Company, California American Water Company, Monterey Peninsula Water Management District, Marina Coast Water District, City of Soledad, and MCSI-Water Management were on hand to answer questions on water conservation and provide free water conservation information and water saving devices.

Conservation information on water fixtures was provided to help us be more efficient, cut water bills and protect our environment. Visitors learned about low water landscapes and efficient irrigation systems.

Beautiful drought tolerant landscapes, created for the Water-Wise Landscape Design Contest, were on display. These displays provided wonderful examples of attractive low-water use landscapes that grow well locally. Ewing Irrigation, Martin's Irrigation Supply, and McShane's Nursery and Landscape Supply donated the prizes for the contest winners. Information on drip irrigation, smart irrigation controllers, and other conservation strategies were available at the tables at the Water Conservation Showcase.

A variety of beautiful plants, water conserving toilet and an irrigation controller were on display and raffled off to fair goers thanks to Martin's Irrigation, Del Rey Garden Center, and Del Rey Plumbing Supply.

Thanks to all who attended the Conservation Showcase at the Monterey County Fair, and to those who donated time and material support.  All participated in a great effort to help our community and deserve a big pat on the back.
