What We’ve Been Up To
Drought and Equity Summit

January 9th, 2016, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

EJCW and Pacific Institute will launch their Drought and Equity in California report in Fresno and Sacramento by hosting two back-to-back summits. The summits will bring together community members from drought-affected and water-disadvantaged communities, water utility representatives, water governance staff, members of the report’s advisory committee, and more to present the findings and recommendations of the report in the areas of:

  • Drought and Domestic Water Shortages
  • Drought Charges and Water Affordability
  • Drought and Salmon Fishing Communities

View the Drought & Equity Report here to read about report findings and the comments from Fresno area stakeholders.

WE CAN – SJV Launch

May 14, 2016

Thank you to all who joined is for groundbreaking kickoff event for our WE CAN program in Fresno! Together with the City of Fresno, Department of Water Resources, and Grass Creations, LGC completed the first turf conversion of the WE CAN program. Homeowner Sylvia Flores and her husband Mr. Wright removed their turf and replaced it with drought-tolerant plants, mulch, boulders, and path stones. With the help of CSU Fresno student volunteers, LGC staff removed the last of the lawn and began to install the water-efficient landscaping alternatives.

Assembly Member Joaquin Arambula, proponent of water conservation in the Fresno region, also stopped by the demonstration to help install the new landscape and answer neighborhood questions about water resource management and the drought.
