Dramatic rainfall shifts region’s priorities toward community safety

The arrival of El Niño in early January has prompted Rowland Water District (RWD) in southeast Los Angeles County, Calif., to educate its customers about preventing long-term storm damage while keeping an eye on conservation goals. Although the news of El Niño was prominent throughout 2015, consistent messaging and notifications is a key tactic for the district. Living in a drought-stricken region, taking the correct precautionary actions can allow RWD residents to keep their homes, property and businesses as safe as possible.
