Portola Valley seeks volunteers for water-conservation committee

 

The new committee on conserving water in Portola Valley is short of members and Town Hall is looking for volunteers.

The statewide drought led the Town Council to establish a water-conservation task force in February 2014. Its goals were a community forum on water conservation -- held in October -- a list of ways residents and businesses can save water, updates to the town website and recommendations on how the town can encourage water conservation.

This new committee, one of 15 permanent committees that advise the council on issues ranging from trail maintenance to town finances to geology, is a follow-up to the conservation task force, which was temporary. The council established the committee in December 2014.

Committee members would work to maintain the momentum on water conservation, including developing educational programs for the public and making suggestions on conservation regulations, policies and incentives to the council.

The deadline for submitting a letter of interest to the council is 5 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 6, 2015.
