The San Diego County Water Authority and The U-T San Diego are teaming up again in 2015 to provide timely information about water conservation every Saturday in the Home and Garden section in the newspaper and online. The U-T will publish a question-and-answer column called "Dear Drought Fighter" to help San Diego Country residents make the most of limited water supplies during a severe statewide drought.
The column will feature a range of practical ideas, resources, and tools to help reduce water use in homes and businesses. Residents may submit questions to the Water Authority at firstname.lastname@example.org and will be eligible for free conservation devices and items such as shower times and soil moisture sensors.
