Six groups honored for water conservation efforts
March 16, 2010, 02:07 AM

Two businesses, two organizations, a city and a school district will receive Silicon Valley Water Conservation Awards on World Water Day — Monday, March 22. The awards, in their second year, recognize groups whose programs and leadership have advanced water conservation in Silicon Valley from San Mateo County, Santa Clara County and Alameda County from Hayward south.

Nurserymen’s Exchange of Half Moon Bay, Cisco Systems, the city of Hayward, California Contractors Association, Campbell Union School District and the Humane Society Silicon Valley will all receive the award.

Nurserymen’s Exchange is one of the largest wholesalers of indoor blooming plants, specialty foliage and packaged plants in the country. Through a comprehensive water conservation program that includes extensive investment in facilities as well as an ongoing focus on creating a culture of conservation through education and communication, they have reduced their potable water use by nearly 50 percent over the last two years. This reduction represents nearly 4 percent of the Coastside County Water District’s water production.
