Watermaster Press Release - February 21, 2019

Despite the above-average rainfall this winter, it is critical for our region to continue to conserve water. Main San Gabriel Basin Watermaster Executive Officer, Tony Zampiello, issued a press release saying, "It is critical that residents maximize all opportunities to conserve water, even in wet years to preserve long-term, local sustainability of our water supplies”. Zampiello also said that “the simplest way to relate to the Basin is to picture a piggy bank – we have been taking from the bank for over five years and now it is time to start putting it back”. “Remembering that even though the hillsides are green today, the water stored beneath our feet is our future."
