Water faucet stock

The Sonoma-Marin Saving Water Partnership is setting up shop around the region on Saturday, June 12 to hand out free water-saving kits to local residents. The Drought Drop By will be at the Cloverdale Plaza on June 12 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., or while supplies last.

What’s in the kit?

As the county and California as a whole delve deeper into a drought, the items in each kit are supposed to help promote the use of less water. According to the Sonoma-Marin Saving Water Partnership

●    Bucket to catch water for reuse

●    WaterSense labeled low flow showerhead

●    5-minute shower timer

●    WaterSense labeled low flow faucet aerator
