Dry year does not bode well for Californians: CBS News
If you live in Kern County, your water supply is critical to your everyday life. Whether you work at an auto shop, a retail store, a school or a farm, having an adequate water supply is important for your job and your lifestyle. Since Kern County receives just about seven inches of rain a year, it’s important that we maintain our water supply from the northern parts of California, plus conserve what we have here.
Learn more about how you can conserve water and save this precious resource. Remember – Every Drop Counts in Kern!
WATER SAVING TIP: Do you like the water you drink to be cold? Rather than running the kitchen faucet for several minutes to get cold water, keep a pitcher of water in the refrigerator
