I have the privilege of working with incredibly dedicated and hard-working professionals who are responsible for providing water, wastewater, and stormwater services to our community. Our Department is also responsible for the maintenance of the City's streetlights, traffic signals, vehicles and buses. No matter how difficult, challenging or unpleasant the task, the employees of Municipal Services strive to do whatever it takes to get the job done in a cost-effective and timely manner. It's a real pleasure to be a part of such a fine team.

A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS
Many of us have heard all about how California is facing one of the most severe droughts on record. We listen to stories of wells drying up and farmers lands going fallow. Yet amid all this discussion, the continual warnings and a declaration of emergency by the Governor, data shows that water use has only declined by about five percent throughout the State. So this week we thought it might be helpful to have a visual demonstration of the impacts of the drought. Below are pictures of a few California lakes and reservoirs, comparing them with images from just a few years ago. Perhaps seeing the effects of the drought first hand will help to demonstrate how important it is to use water efficiently in order to preserve this natural resource now and for years to come. To see more images of drought impacted facilities, visit the City’s Go Green section of the website at www.CityofTurlock.org/GoGreen.
