The ladies are having a bit of breakfast and probably sharing some gossip before heading over to the lake to join the guys to get a drink.

Water

California is in a major drought. We need to save water wherever we can. Shortening your shower by a minute or two could save up to 150 gallons per month. Put food coloring in the toilet tank, if it seeps into the bowl without flushing there's a leak. Fixing it could save several gallons. Water your lawn every three days at night or in the early morning hours when temperatures are cooler and winds lighter. Fix a dripping faucet, a drip a second uses five gallons per day. Do your part to conserve where we can.

The new AMI water meters continue to be beneficial in saving the District's staff time. This time of year it is especially helpful as several water leaks have been found and residents were notified so it could be repaired before their water bill got out of control.

Parks and Recreation

Kid's Summer Day Camp is scheduled for July 19-23 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. for ages 9 through 12. Join the camp for crafts, games, swimming and other fun summer activities. Contact the CSD for further information.
