Signs of the Tide: In Over Our Heads-- San Diego's Water Deficit
San Diego’s main supply of drinking water currently runs from the most endangered river in the country. At the rate we’re consuming our water, the Colorado River is bound to dry up sooner than later. Want to make a difference in your water consumption, but don’t know how? Come to Signs of the Tide: In Over Our Heads to learn what you can do— from implementing conservation techniques like rainwater harvesting to home irrigation design, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to learn how to make a lasting difference in our water supply and save the Colorado River.
At our free community forum, hear from these conservation experts:
• JoEllen Jacoby, the Supervising Landscape Conservation Designer for the City of San Diego Water Conservation Department, will present and discuss rebate options for San Diego residents seeking to implement conservation practices at home and the workplace.
• Candace Vanderhoff, CEO and founder of RainThanks & Greywater, will provide more information about different sustainable reuse systems such as rainwater harvesting and landscaping techniques like replacing turf with native plants and using “low impact development” garden design.
• Gary Wockner, Save the Colorado campaign coordinator, will discuss our relationship to the most endangered river in America while exploring different ways our efforts in San Diego can impact areas beyond our homes and yards.
