San Gabriel Valley Water Smart City Challenge – Program Overview

In response to Governor Jerry Brown’s emergency drought declaration in January 2014, Upper District’s Board of Directors unveiled a creative public outreach campaign that utilized existing conservation programs with innovative outreach components that encouraged cities to promote drought awareness to their residents. The San Gabriel Valley Water Smart City Challenge called upon all 18 cities within Upper District’s service territory to lead by example and adopt best practices for water conservation.

The cities of Azusa, Rosemead, and West Covina received the top honors and each received a $50,000 grant towards a sustainable watershed project from Upper District.
