                      Presented by Twig Holland, Program Coordinator, Aquarian Water Company


                      In 2016 southwestern Connecticut experienced the fifth worst drought since

                      1895.  Aquarian worked collaboratively with local and state officials to increase
                      the water supply to the area, and to enact mandatory irrigation restrictions by 
                      customers in the four communities impacted by the drought.  While these
                      measures and seasonal rainfall have resulted in supply improvements in 2017,
                      "conservation" needs to become part of the water supply vocabulary to ensure
                      everyone uses water wisely.  Listen and learn and join the conservation of water
                      project.
