An outcome of our workshop!

I'm happy to see that the AQMD has chosen to fund a couple of projects from the attendees to our workshops on the AQMD AB 1318 funds.   Not all of them attended our proposal preparation workshops, but a few of them did and the total funded to some of our workshop attendees is over 3 million!

Water Fountain USEPA

I just noticed this on the EPA website. It is the initiative to bring back the water fountain   Bottled water is not a substitute.
