Special report: April 1, 2019 (Borrego Springs) – The Borrego Water District, in partnership with the Borrego Chamber of Commerce, has issued a plan to help ease the region’s dire water shortage. A new publicity campaign titled “Bring a bottle to flush: keep the desert lush” is rolling out today.
Flyers, posters and press releases urge tourists and residents to buy bottled water outside the region and to please pour a bottle into the toilet before each flush.
With long lines of traffic flowing into the region for wildflower viewing, art shows and the Borrego Days annual festival, civic leaders hope this plan will help:
