LEARN HOW TO WINTERIZE YOUR HOME, SAVE WATER AT PWD WORKSHOP ON DEC. 9

Palmdale, CA – Palmdale Water District (PWD) will host an informative workshop to help customers prepare their homes’ water pipes for the winter freezes and learn ways to save water.

The Water-Wise Workshop: Winterizing Your Home event is scheduled for 11 a.m.-noon Thursday, Dec. 9, at PWD, 2029 East Avenue Q, Palmdale. It is free, but registration is required. Register at palmdalewd.seamlessdocs.com/f/Winter_Workshop. Attendees will receive water-saving tools and be eligible to win a $50 irrigation valve rock cover prize. It is open to all Palmdale residents. Masks will be required.

“We’re excited to be offering this workshop, especially when the nights will soon be freezing,” said PWD Resource and Analytics Supervisor Claudia Bolanos. “Not enough people pay attention to the water pipes in their homes in the winter. If not properly maintained, they could freeze, burst and cause a lot of damage.”


At the workshop, attendees will learn how to wrap their water pipes, other ways to prevent pipes from freezing, and water saving tips from the Water-Use Efficiency team. There also will be information about available rebates for PWD customers and other water-saving programs.

PWD is asking customers to use water wisely and cut at least 15% from their everyday usage to abide by the state of California’s request and the implementation of Stage 2 (Voluntary) of PWD’s 2020 Water Shortage Contingency Plan.

Since 1918, the Palmdale Water District has provided high-quality water at a reasonable cost. We pride ourselves on providing great customer care; advocating for local water issues that help our residents; educating the community on water-use efficiency; and leading our region in researching and implementing emerging technologies that increase operational efficiency.
