CPAU supports mural encouraging Californians to conserve water
Published on May 26, 2022
The City of Palo Alto Utilities (CPAU) is proudly sponsoring a new mural unveiled today near the State Capitol in Sacramento that encourages all Californians to save water.
Called the “California Water Wall,” the mural is an enduring reminder that saving water is a California way of life, whether during this ongoing drought or in wetter conditions. California is currently experiencing its third consecutive year of serious drought, and we all must do our part by saving water in order to get through the upcoming hot and dry summer months.
“The mural is more than a beautiful and vibrant artwork. It’s also an everyday call for Californians to save water no matter the month, season, or year,” said Danielle Blacet-Hyden, deputy executive director of the California Municipal Utilities Association (CMUA), the mural project’s organizer. “Our hope is that when Californians see or visit the mural, they will be inspired to recommit to saving water.”
CPAU is one of more than two dozen water providers and agencies in California sponsoring the water mural in downtown Sacramento, located only a few blocks away from the State Capitol. The mural, measuring 100 feet long and 20 feet tall, emphasizes water’s importance to California, its people, and environment.
“Our support of this mural is another example of how CPAU is helping lead as California continues to find innovative solutions to help us through this serious drought,” said Catherine Elvert, Utilities Communications Manager. “The mural is a creative way to get the word out encouraging all Californians to save water, especially during this severe drought.”
