(Victorville)—This week, the High Desert Spring Home Show comes to the High Desert Event Center on April 10th, 11th and 12th. Along with booths dedicated to home improvements, garden and remodeling, attendees will be able to learn about water conservation and the many ways to conserve in the face of the drought.
The water conservation aspect of the show is being provided by AWAC, the Alliance for Water Awareness and Conservation. AWAC is a collaborative group of over twenty agencies committed to achieving water conservation goals within the 4,900 square mile service area of MWA. Organizations that are a part of AWAC include the Mojave Water Agency, Apple Valley Ranchos Water Co., Golden State Water, Victorville Water District, the City of Adelanto, and more.
The purpose of the water conservation efforts at the Home Show is to get the community involved in water conservation. AWAC will be showing new products, discuss rebate programs, show proper plants, as well as have a how to video section that can educate the community on several topics. “With the drought being in everyone’s mind these days, we want to show the community that there are conservation efforts we can do on a daily basis to do our part in saving water,” said Ranchos Water’s Norma Armenta, Chairperson for AWAC.
There will be giveaways as well, ranging from conservation tools such as sink aerators, to faucets, irrigation tools and even a low flow toilet. There will also be fun for the kids, all the in theme of water.
The Home Show will run from Thursday through Sunday. For more information on AWAC, visit them online at http://hdawac.org.
