DROUGHT BUSTERS, THE CITY’S MOBILE WATER CONSERVATION TEAM, RETURN
TO THE STREETS TO “SPOT AND STOP” WATER WASTE
With continuing pressure on the City’s water supply, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) will kick-off the City’s latest effort to help raise awareness about the continuing need for water conservation by returning Drought Busters: LA’s Conservation Team to LA’s streets after a 13-year hiatus.
- The Drought Busters Conservation Team will patrol the City’s streets to educate City residents on how to reduce water waste. The Drought Busters will drive Toyota Hybrid Prius vehicles clearly identified with the Drought Busters logo.
- The Drought Busters will hit the streets immediately following the press conference, departing from in front of the LADWP headquarters.
