CVWD Issues Customer Challenge During
Smart Irrigation Month
The Cucamonga Valley Water District (CVWD/District) is celebrating Smart Irrigation Month throughout July by offering activities to educate customers on the importance of water use efficiency. Smart Irrigation Month, spearheaded by the Irrigation Association, is a public outreach campaign celebrated annually in July with the purpose of creating awareness about water saving irrigation devices and ways to cut water waste outdoors. Though drought conditions have subsided, CVWD encourages all customers to continue using water efficiently, fixing leaks immediately, and taking advantage of valuable conservation rebates and programs.
This year CVWD is hosting a social media challenge to encourage customers to take action. Participants are asked to share a photo or video of themselves (or a family member) using a “Smart Irrigation” technique. At the end of the month two winners will be chosen. Prizes include a basket of conservation materials and devices, in addition to a high efficiency toilet and installation. Those interested in participating can monitor CVWD’s website and social media channels- www.CVWDwater.com, Facebook.com/CVWDwater, Twitter.com/CVWDwater, and YouTube.com/CVWDwater for updates.
Examples of “Smart Irrigation” tips that can be implemented throughout the competition include:
The District also promotes additional incentives and rebate programs that may assist homeowners in saving water outdoors. These include:
