Pacifica civic leaders (government, nonprofit, educational institution, residential, faith community, family group) ask all Pacificans to help save water.
The governor has declared a drought emergency, and our water district has called for voluntary 20 percent reduction in water use. This means taking shorter showers, using less water in the home and garden, using commercial car washes instead of washing the car at home, etc. The water district and the Internet have lots of good ideas for saving water.
This is a genuine crisis, and we all need to do our part to help. I am cutting way back on my water use, and writing about this emergency in my Pacifica Tribune column and here on my Pacifica Riptide blog. Please do whatever you can to spread the word to others. We need to do this thing now! Every day counts. And don’t forget to “pray for rain,” even if you’re not religious. Thanks.
