Regional Leaders Gather to Promote Conservation amidst Historic Drought

“Live Smart” Community Event Hosted by Moulton Niguel Water District, City of Laguna Niguel, and Laguna Niguel Chamber of Commerce Urges Residents to Save Water & Energy MNWD - Live Smart Community Event Media Advisory - 5 14 15 - Final  (2)_Page_1

Summer is right around the corner, and the heat is rapidly approaching Southern California. In this time of severe drought, we need to do everything we can to save our most precious resource – water. To help encourage water savings during the hot months ahead while doing its part to meet the statewide water reductions mandated by Governor Jerry Brown, Moulton Niguel Water District (MNWD) will be implementing its comprehensive Water Shortage Contingency Plan starting June 1.

On the heels of this decision, Moulton Niguel Water District will join the City of Laguna Niguel and the Laguna Niguel Chamber of Commerce to host a dynamic and engaging community event to provide valuable information to customers on how to “live smart” by saving water and energy and taking advantage of conservation rebates from local utilities. The event will educate residents on how to increase conservation to help meet state mandated conservation goals and to live within their water budget.
