SACRAMENTO, CA--(Marketwire - August 14, 2009) - The "Save Our Water" statewide public education program has added Spanish-language conservation tips and other information to its popular Web site, www.saveourH2O.org.

Spanish-language content includes an overview of the state's current water shortages and the need to conserve. Tips for conservation inside and outside the home also are included. To visit the Spanish-language portion of the site, find the "Español" link on the homepage at www.saveourH2O.org.

The Save Our Water program was launched recently by the Association of California Water Agencies (ACWA) and the California Department of Water Resources in response to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's statewide drought proclamation in February. Patterned after the successful "Flex Your Power" public education campaign, the program aims to educate Californians about the state's water challenges and encourage greater water conservation.
