SACRAMENTO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/23/14 -- Save Our Water, a statewide water conservation education program, launched a four-week radio advertising campaign today to make the public aware of the severity of the drought and remind them of Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr.'s call to reduce household water use by 20%. The spots also direct consumers to the Save Our Water website, Facebook page and Twitter page for conservation tips and information.
Save Our Water was created by the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) and the Association of California Water Agencies in 2009. The program works closely with local water agencies to help Californians learn the many ways they can save water inside and outside their homes.
Four different radio spots will be aired in the state's five biggest media markets (Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Sacramento and Fresno) this week, and the weeks of Jan. 27, Feb. 10 and Feb. 24. The spots will air in 14 additional smaller markets from Jan. 27 through the week of March 17.
The radio scripts are as follows (audio versions available here):

Third Consecutive Dry Year Leads to Drought Emergency
Governor Brown declared a drought state of emergency on Jan. 17 and urged Californians to reduce their water use by 20%. The governor directed consumers to the Save Our Water program to learn ways to reduce household water use, indoor and outdoor.
DWR conducted the first snow survey of the year on Jan. 3 and officials measured the snowpack's statewide water content at about 20 percent of average for this time of year. According to DWR, the readings this month and in 2012 are the driest on record. The next snow survey will be conducted on Thurs., Jan. 30. Calendar year 2013 closed as the driest year in recorded history for many areas of California, and current conditions suggest no change in sight for 2014.
