Coronado Couple Win “WaterSmart Landscape Contest”

In March of 2017, California American Water announced its new Sustainable Landscapes Program in which it encouraged customers of California American Water who are residents of the San Diego region to “take a watershed approach to landscaping their yards.” Partnering with the San Diego County Water Authority, the City of San Diego, County of San Diego, Surfrider Foundation, and the Association of Compost Producers, the mission of the new program set out to be “the go-to resource to assist San Diego County residents in adopting sustainable landscaping best practices through education and training, technical assistance, landscaping materials and financial incentives.”

Letter to the Editor: Water Board Members Compensated Fairly

The U-T’s print-edition version of a story (“Attorney: Agency’s meetings must be open,” May 18) omitted critical context that may give readers a false impression about compensation for San Diego County Water Authority Board members. The online version of the story said directors on the agency’s 36-member Board were collectively paid more than $80,000 in per diems for participating in certain agency meetings in 2016. The word “collectively” was not in the print version, leaving some readers to erroneously believe that individual board members collected more than $80,000 annually.
