Water Conservation to Mitigate Fire Risk

Sonoma County is on the verge of a drought emergency with expected water restrictions and fire risk mitigation measures. A panel of experts will discuss plans to deal with this crisis.

Barry Dugan from Sonoma Water who will talk about Sonoma County water – where we get it and what the situation in the county is.
Claire Nordlie from Santa Rosa City Water who is the Water Use Coordinator for the city to discuss how we can conserve water.
Paul Lowenthal from Santa Rosa Fire Department to discuss how to conserve water in landscaping without increasing fire risks.
Followed by a robust Q&A session.

This is meant to be an opportunity for HOA leaders and residents to get a head start planning for serious outages during the drought this summer.

A Potluck Lunch, to which all club members are invited whether playing or not, as well as their spouses/partners/companions, will begin at approximately 12 noon.
