May 28, 2015 – The California Drought and Water Conservation – Lunch & Learn

How dry is dry? We will learn what actions local Water Agencies may take and how they could impact your buildings and campuses. What can you do to manage the drought and prepare for potential water restrictions? We will discuss new technologies and easy to implement solutions that can make a difference when dealing with drought.  Landscaping watering uses very high volumes of clean water. How easy is it to switch from potable water for landscape irrigation to recycled water?  What about utilizing controls for long-term savings? What about alternatives to pressure washing in efforts to save water…Our guest speaker is from BSM Facility Services
