The May 9, 2014, issue of ACWA News is now available online. The top story in this issue: Gov. Jerry Brown on May 1 commemorated May as Save Our Water month and reiterated his call to the public to conserve water while the state is “in the throes of a drought.” Brown’s commemoration was released the same day Save Our Water — a partnership between ACWA and the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) — launched a statewide outdoor media campaign to bring awareness to the drought and educate Californians on ways to save water every day. The campaign — dubbed ‘Californians Don’t Waste’ — seeks to tap into Californians’ ethic of conservation.
