As part of Desert Garden Community Day, Saturday, October 28, CV Water Counts will present “Water Guzzlers or Water Gurus?” at UCR Palm Desert. The free-to-attend program is designed to help everyone who attends better understand what the golf and agriculture industries are really doing to address sustainable uses of water in drought–susceptible California. There will also be discussion about emerging water use technology for homes and businesses.
“When you fly over the Colorado Desert Communities of the Coachella Valley, you quickly note vast regions covered with agriculture and golf courses. Many discussions have been raised about sustainable growth as it pertains to water not only in a drought-susceptible state such as California, but also in the middle of a desert,” notes John Soulliere, spokesperson for CV Water Counts, and Mission Springs Water District’s Conservation and Public Affairs Officer.
“CV Water Counts regional conservation group will host a panel from three industries known for their dependence on water to shed light on contemporary practices that have moved historic ‘water-guzzler’ industries over to sustainable ‘water-guru’ industries,” adds Soulliere.
The program begins at 12:45 pm at the UCR Palm Desert campus, 75-080 Frank Sinatra Drive, in Palm Desert. Oh, and dide we mention that this is a free event!!! Desert Garden Day is presented by Desert Horticultural Society of the Coachella Valley, and co-hosted with UCR Palm Desert.
We look forward to seeing you there!!!
