CITY REMINDS RESIDENTS TO CONSERVE WATER

THROUGH SPRING/SUMMER WATERING SCHEDULE

 

(FRESNO, CA) - With temperatures well into triple digits, the City of Fresno Department of Public Utilities’ Water Division is reminding residents to follow the Spring/Summer Watering Schedule.

 

Water conservation is a key component to managing the community’s water supply. The City depends on conserved water as part of its water supply. Increased water-usage results in the City having to treat and deliver more water.

 

The seasonal watering schedule runs March 2 through November 30. There is no watering on Mondays or between the hours of 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

PG&E Encourages Energy Conservation During Summer

PG&E ENCOURAGES ENERGY CONSERVATION WITH SUMMER IN FULL SWING

Using Electricity Efficiently Will Help Relieve State’s Grid—and Ease Customers’ Electric Bills

FRESNO, Calif. – Summer is in high gear, and so is California’s electric grid. To help ensure power supplies will match demand throughout the hot season, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) is encouraging customers to do their share to conserve energy.

In addition to conservation, utilities depend on “demand response” programs to keep the grid stable during summer months. Demand response programs are voluntary and allow enrolled customers to receive an incentive for reducing their energy use during peak demand times, like weekday afternoons. 

'Dolly The Llama' Swiped From Fresno Yard

'Dolly The Llama' Swiped From Fresno Yard

A llama is missing. Thieves stole a piece of Fresno's art history and kidnapped a llama made out of steel by a well-known local artist 30 years ago.

"Dolly the Llama" is made from hundreds of coat hangers welded together.

The statue was in the front yard of a house off Clovis and Kings Canyon in Southeast Fresno.

Well-known Fresno artist Chris Sorensen made it for his son and daughter-in-law more than 30 years ago.

Mrs. Sorensen came outside Tuesday morning and noticed the llama was gone.

The Sorensens are offering a reward for the safe return of the llama statue.

The family can be reached at (559) 260-1260.
