September meeting – Is drought the new normal?

On September 24, 2015, at 7 p.m. at the Windsor Round Table Pizza, 8499 Old Redwood Hwy, the Windsor Democratic Club will hear from two speakers who are engaged in conserving our water resources.

Paul Piazza, the Town of Windsor Water Conservation Analyst, will give some helpful information on water saving strategies, as well as rebate incentives for water saving appliances. Mr. Piazza will also explain how Windsor is using recycled water and how this may be expanded. The impact of the proposed Lytton Tribal trust land on Windsor water and sewer will be discussed.

Update (September 24): Paul Piazza will not be speaking at tonight’s meeting.

Ryan Pedrotti, Sonoma County Water Agency Water Education Programs Specialist, will present information on the agency that diverts, pumps, and treats the water delivered to more than 600,000 residents in portions of Sonoma and Marin counties. The Water Agency is expanding its energy and sustainability projects, including solar panels and ground source and pond loop geoexchange heating and cooling systems. The agency is committed to getting 100% of its electricity from renewable and carbon free resources. Right now 55% of this electricity is coming from Sonoma County landfill gas.

There will be plenty of time for questions. The meeting is free and open to the public. Pizza will be served.
