DRIP and Mesa County Fair “Join the Flock”

The Mesa County Fair, the DRIP program, Sutherlands, IMPACT Promotions, and Grand Valley BMX are teaming up for water conservation – and helping you keep cool in the hot sun!

Just look for the water truck near the entrance to this year’s Fair and purchase one of our nifty, reusable water bottles for only $4!

“Do The Drip” is part of the Fair’s ongoing commitment to Go Green. Our Fair staff and volunteers will all use reusable water bottles rather than bottled water.

15The Drought Response Information Project, or DRIP, is an organization of water providers in the Grand Valley of western Colorado. DRIP is dedicated to educating and informing the public about water in the Grand Valley along with drought response efforts. Earlier this year, DRIP launched the “Join the Flock” campaign which encourages the community to adopt “Flo the Flamingo” into their landscape along with efficient and responsible water usage. Come by the DRIP booth for your opportunity to “Join the Flock” and get your FREE “Flo the Flamingo”.   downsized950713130838c

DRIP was founded following the ‘Drought of 2002’ when the City of Grand Junction, Clifton Water District and Ute Water Conservancy District developed a Grand Valley Drought Response Plan. DRIP is comprised of representatives from each of the above organizations who implement the Drought Response Plan and perform public outreach efforts.

For additional information on DRIP, the Grand Valley Drought Response Plan or the “Join The Flock” campaign, please contact your local domestic water provider.
