On Patrol with the Drought Police

Burbank, CA is trying out several different approaches to get its roughly 105,000 residents to save water, including signs, banners and ads that educate residents about the drought. The utility is also using recycled water to irrigate landscaping. With its new drought patrol, software and water recycling program, Burbank has reduced overall water use by 24 percent – which is in line with Burbank’s state-mandated water reduction target.
