ABOUT CALIFORNIA SUSTAINABILITY
California is a leading force in the development of a more environmentally-conscious future.
According to Steve Cohen of Columbia University, “California has led the nation and indeed the world on environmental policy for over a half a century.”
California has statistically exhibited a remarkable commitment to environmental sustainability practices and technologies.

Drought remains a real threat to the wellbeing of California natives despite recent years of more consistent moisture.
Even when California is not presently in the midst of a drought, wildfires remain a constant risk. Most often a combination of periods of reduced rainfall and dry fire-loving foreign plants heighten the damage involved in the wildfires of hot California summers.
Its important for us to do whatever we can to save water wherever possible, as well as take advantage of the miriad of fire-resistent plant species that are available for our homes and gardens. Another benefit of this choice is an ability to save plenty of money each year on your water bill and contribute to a healthier planet for our futures.[/col] [/row] [row] [col span__sm=”12″] [ux_image id=”17244″] [/col] [/row] [row] [col span__sm=”12″]
WHAT EXACTLY IS WATER SUSTAINABILITY?
Sustainable water management means that the ability to meet the water needs of the present time is accomplished without compromising the ability of future generations to do the same.
Achieving sustainable water management requires a multidisciplinary and holistic approach in which technical, environmental, economic, landscape aesthetic, societal and cultural issues are addressed with care.
It also means water supply will remain consistent, despite climate change impacts such as a lack of rainfall and drought, or too much rain which can cause flooding and landslides.
Water sustainability implies that the economics stack up of matching supply and demand and the water delivery process is as efficient as possible. Water sustainabilit can also mean energy neutrality by coupling traditional water treatment technologies with renewable energies.
