LOS ANGELES, Aug. 25, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — California’s Save Our Water Campaign and the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California are partnering with Angel City Football Club this Sunday at BMO Stadium to offer fans resources on how to use water more efficiently inside and outside their homes.
“Save Our Water is proud to partner with Angel City and Metropolitan’s bewaterwise.com campaign. This collaboration has been a great way for us to talk with residents about adopting a new mindset for conserving water every day, especially outdoors,” said Secretary Wade Crowfoot of the California Natural Resources Agency.
Metropolitan General Manager Adel Hagekhalil acknowledged the connection Angel City has fostered with local communities, noting that Angel City Captain Ali Riley and teammate Jasmyne Spencer are spreading water-saving messages on Metropolitan’s social media channels.
“Angel City and its players have shown leadership in water conservation and sustainability,” Hagekhalil said. “This partnership is a great way to showcase how every drop of water counts toward our future.”
With up to 60% of household water used outdoors for watering, both Save Our Water and bewaterwise.com offer water-saving tips and resources to make changes big and small in how the public uses water every day. Metropolitan also offers Southern Californians rebates to purchase water-efficient devices such as smart sprinkler controllers and rain barrels and to replace lawns with vibrant California Friendly® and sustainable native plant gardens. In addition, bewaterwise.com features gardening guides and resources to help residents and businesses to make the change.
At the Angel City Fan Fest, a pre-game tailgate experience near BMO stadium in Exposition Park, attendees can enjoy food trucks, games and live music. Fans can also visit the bewaterwise.com and Save Our Water booth for conservation-related giveaways and to learn more about making water conservation a way of life.
Secretary Crowfoot will join Hagekhalil and Metropolitan Board Vice Chair Nancy Sutley during pregame festivities on the pitch during this Sunday’s Angel City match. The match will prove to be an exciting opportunity for fans as Angel City faces rival OL Reign in their third matchup of the year.
