City officials have announced the dates for two water conservation workshops aimed at informing residents about the recently adopted emergency water conservation ordinance.

The first workshop is scheduled for Thursday, June 18 at 7 p.m. in the Bidwell Forum. The second water workshop is scheduled three weeks later, July 9 at 7 p.m., also in the Bidwell forum.

At each workshop, City staff will discuss Glendora’s recently Ordinance 1997 adopted emergency drought response plan, water use efficiency audits, available rates and discuss the use of data from residential gallons per capita per day (R-GPCD).

The emergency water conservation drought condition added to Ordinance 1997, sets reduction requirements for residents and businesses with varying landscape sizes and also establishes punishments for those who violate the Ordinance.

According to water use data collected during Sept. of 2014, Glendora must cut consumption by 36 percent by next February.
