from Australia with Conner Everts
from Soquel Creek District with Ron Duncan
A ten year drought provoked Australians to achieve unprecedented levels of water conservation. Conner Everts of California's Environmental Water Caucus reports on what he learned visiting Australia last year.
In the event that no new water sources become available, the Soquel Creek Water District will seek to reduce water consumption by over 30%---for the next 20 years. District Conservation Manager Ron Duncan reports on this ambitious planning effort, including an innovative plan to improve the District's water-neutral growth policy.
