SACRAMENTO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/06/14 -- Save Our Water -- a partnership between the Association of California Water Agencies (ACWA) and the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) -- announces the launch of a new statewide radio campaign to bring awareness to, and educate, Californians on how to save water every day. The radio campaign builds on an extensive statewide outdoor billboard program unveiled by Save Our Water last week.
Coinciding with Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. commemorating May as Save Our Water Month and his recent call to prevent water waste, the radio advertisements will bring a message of conservation to Californians as we move into the summer fire season with simple, yet attention-grabbing messaging appealing to the Californian ethic -- we are Californians and we don't waste.
"By now we're all aware it's going to be a difficult and dry summer season, and it's essential for us to work together in saving water," said Mark Cowin, Director of the Department of Water Resources. "But, with our final snow survey showing water content at just 18 percent of average for May 1, it's more important than ever to remind Californians to conserve."
"The 'Californians Don't Waste' campaign amplifies the message of local water agencies throughout the state on the need to save water," said Jennifer Persike, Deputy Executive Director for External Affairs and Operations of ACWA. "Together we can share our water conservation tips and ideas to inspire others to do their part."
The 'Californians Don't Waste' radio media campaign will run into June in the Bakersfield, Bay Area, Fresno, Inland Empire, Los Angeles metro, Modesto, San Diego, Sacramento and Stockton media markets. Radio advertisements will be available in English and Spanish. To listen to the advertisements, visit www.saveourh2o.org/radio.
The campaign also includes digital radio spots on Pandora and iHeartRadio to further spread the message of water conservation by urging listeners to participate in the 'Californians Don't Waste' Challenge. The Challenge aims to tap into Californians' can-do spirit and creativity by encouraging the public to join in and share their methods of conserving water. Californians can share their tips, videos and pictures on Save Our Water's Facebook page, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #SaveOurWater. Save Our Water will select videos and photos to share as part of its public awareness campaign.
Governor Brown has called on all Californians to reduce their water use by 20 percent and prevent water waste -- For more ways to save and to learn more about the Save Our Water program, visit www.saveourh2o.org or follow us on Facebook or Twitter. Save Our Water is a partnership between the California Department of Water Resources and the Association of California Water Agencies.

We’ve been doing it for years, decades for some. How many websites have you created accounts on? Your bank, your credit card companies, social media sites, hotels and travel sites, online shopping sites, and that’s just the start. We do it often without even thinking about it, quickly entering our personal information, our data, in a plethora of systems. Sometimes we’re not even aware of the information we are providing. It could be very personal information (think of the security questions you ...

Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
