Friends of Balboa Park is launching a major initiative focused on optimizing water management. We sponsored the creation of a comprehensive plan in the form of a roadmap to achieve the goal of making the parkland “water-wise” by 2020. “Water-wise” means optimizing water use, thereby helping make the parkland more environmentally sustainable. Decisions about the optimal use of water are based not only on reducing water usage but also on the systemic impacts of water use on other natural resources such as air, energy, soil, re-use/recycling of materials, etc. Achieving a water-wise parkland will leave a major legacy for future generations.To view and download the final report,click here to visit our Water-wise collaboration space online.
