This is the 20th year the calendar has been produced by the City’s Public Utilities Department. “The children’s artwork in these calendars is fantastic, and helps present the importance of reducing water use,” said Shauna Lorance, Director of the Public Utilities Department. “I encourage San Diegans to pick up a calendar and learn about water conservation all year.” Calendars are available while supplies last at all City of San Diego Public Library branches and recreation centers.
