California is in a Drought. Burbankers Can Help.
In Southern California, water is liquid gold. Burbank is 100% dependent on imported water purchased from the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD). The water comes from the State Water Project in Northern California and the Colorado River Aqueduct and travels through hundreds of miles of pipes and canals to get to Burbank. On top of that, it takes a lot of electricity to move the water across long distances. Which is why once water finally gets here, every drop is precious and should be used wisely, especially when there's a drought.
