Do your part to conserve water

-A +A
As you are all well aware, there has been a collapse of the PG&E Bear River Canal near Colfax. This is resulting in shortages of both treated and untreated water that could have potentially devastating consequences for the agricultural community and others within Placer County. While PCWA and PG&E are working full time to repair the breach and get a temporarily fix in place, you can help. Please pass along a request to everyone in your community (and to your affiliated organizations in the areas impacted by the PCWA water shortage) to voluntarily conserve water in order to allow the greatest flows to continue down the existing canals until a repair to the Bear River Canal can be made. Your conservation efforts "upstream" will greatly help our friends and neighbors down the hill. I thank you all for your immediate compliance — let's all break out those brooms, let our cars and rigs get dirty and only water when absolutely necessary. Jennifer Montgomery, Placer County Supervisor, District 5
