NBC4 teamed up with the San Gabriel Valley Municipal Water District and the Alhambra Unified School District to host a community event to discuss the impact of the drought on November 19, 2014.
More than 300 people packed the auditorium at Mark Keppel High School in Alhambra to learn about ways to be more waterwise, fire protection and drought-friendly landscaping tips.
NBC4’s news team was part of the conversation including Weathercaster Fritz Coleman; Meteorologist Crystal Egger; and Reporter Patrick Healy. Other participants included the City of Alhambra Fire Chief Bill Walker; Theodore Payne Foundation's Director of Outreach Lisa Novick; and the Council for Watershed Health's Director of Programs Mike Antos.
NBC4 was presented with certificates of appreciation for covering the drought in the community from the City of Alhambra, the City of Monterey Park and the California State Assembly representing District 49.
