 Congratulations to Redwood City's Annual Water Conservation Poster Contest winners! 

RedwoodCity-Activity-Cover

Our Annual Water Conservation Poster Contest is the centerpiece of the School education program, designed to promote water conservation awareness among Redwood City students in kindergarten through 5th grade. Our newest poster contest winners were recognized at the City Council meeting on Monday, January 23rd, 2017. Click here to view the winning posters. They are on display at City Hall during the month of January.

This year's contest theme is "Conserve Water Like a Pro With H2O Joe." The focus of this year's theme is modeled after the Governor's Executive Order, Making Water Conservation a Way of Life. While water conditions have improved, Californians must never forget we live in an arid state, and that water should never be taken for granted. To maintain a continuum of the water-conserving lifestyle adopted by Californians during this historic drought, the State has adopted permanent water waste prohibitions focusing on using water more wisely and eliminating outdoor water waste. A good choice since outdoor water use accounts for approximately half of the water consumed. The Governor's Executive Order prohibits:

 1) Watering landscape during and 48 hours after rain,                                                                           

 2) Hosing off sidewalks and driveways,                                                                                             

 3) Washing cars without a shut-off nozzle,                                                                                           

 4) Non-recirculated water in a decorative water feature, and                                                                

 5) Irrigating in a manner that causes runoff.

These are simple and effective ways to save or rather, not waste water.
