Hi Folks,  I wanted to use this area as a notification tool as well.  Please see my  attachment to this post about our Capital Improvement Projects (CIP). 

I will post here again when I have a firm date for the earthquake connector installations.

Please call if you have any questions.

Flower Sale & a Class for you

posted Oct 4, 2011, 11:33 AM by James Hansen

Hi Folks, 

Just wanted to let you know we received a flyer from our water conservation group about Home Depots upcoming "Water Conservation Plant Sale" happening on October 15th, from 9-2.  We have been after the local big box stores to sell plants that are more adapt for this desert region.  If they get a good turnout on Saturday they will hold more of these sales next year.  Give it a shot. 


Next is the ongoing series, "The ABCs of Water" held at Mojave Water Agencies headquarters in Apple Valley.  This installment is entitled, "How to Prepare and Avoid Winter Emergencies".  We hope it will have lots of great information about winterizing and protection of water pipes around your home.

Water Conservation Classes

The Alliance for Water Awarness and Conservation (AWAC) is offering five workshops through May showing how to conserve water in our outdoor yards.  These folks do a wonderful job of presenting the materials.  And they are FREE!  Let me know if you would like to see a class similar to this, or on a different subject entirely, hosted here at the District.

The Dr. Oz show and water quality

posted Feb 15, 2011, 12:50 PM by James Hansen

Today, Dr Oz will host a segment about water quality and testing on his show.  We received an "ALERT" from the American Water Works Association (AWWA) to let us know that questions may be coming.  Dr Oz in the past has taken an alarmist attitude toward water.  I am enclosing a link to the AWWA Drink Tap.org site  http://www.drinktap.org . You can find lots of great information on this website.  And it is monitored and administrated by leading figures in the water production industry.  Lots of good information!

If you can't find what you are looking for there,  then as always, drop by, give me a call or send me an email and I'll find the answers you are looking for.  Take Care,  James Hansen
