As California continues to experience one of the worst drought seasons on record, the editors at Sunset decided we couldn’t just stand by and watch. On Wednesday, August 6, at 11 a.m. PDT, we’ll be hosting a Twitter chat about water usage, as well as the policies we should have in place regarding future seasons like this.
Exactly which communities are doing a good job at water saving? How can we apply their practices where we live? Join our editors, along with a host of experts, in a live conversation. It’s bound to get interesting.
