We are so grateful for all firefighter and first responder heroes who just saved our community. They were able to do this because they spent the past five years since the Mountain Fire with multiple organizations working together perfecting a plan.

They were able to instantly put that plan in place due to years of planning, coordinating and practicing.

Now the community is facing a water quality and quantity crisis due to the ongoing drought. All the water districts have an opportunity to get together and coordinate to solve the myriad current problems our entire community is facing.

We are asking our water districts to work together to come up with a plan to Save Our Watershed. If we work together, we can ensure that far into the future we have an adequate supply of affordable, potable water.

At 6 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 8, Idyllwild Water District is having a special meeting to discuss its citation for water contamination. Pine Cove Water District is having its regular board meeting that same day at 10 a.m. The IWD regular board meeting is at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Aug.15, and Fern Valley Water District is having  its regular board meeting at 9 a.m. Friday, Aug. 17.

Please attend any and all of these meetings and urge the board members to be heroes and work together to Save Our Watershed.
