Special guest Nicholas Schneider, Water Conservation and Forecast Manager for the Mojave Water Agency, joins The Water Zone to share on some of the agency’s conservation projects in 2019 - including taking a 820 KW hydroelectric generator online to bring the agency to virtually a net-neutral status. The agency was also able to secure approx. $500,000 in grants to continue work on the Agency's Regional Recharge & Recovery project. Mojave Water is also sponsoring the 2020 Water Summit in Victor Valley, where 500 local school children will learn about the water industry and careers in the industry. The Water Agency also works Curiosity Quest on PBS to present a problem-solver segment to highlight STEM projects.
