Water ConservationWayne Drop Sightings

Have you seen Wayne Drop around Glendale lately? As the official water conservation mascot for the city of Glendale Water Conservation Office, Wayne Drop travels around the city spreading the water conservation message. You can help Wayne Drop by using water wisely at home and school and teaching others how to use water wisely, too!

Wayne Drop appeared at the WOW Wednesdays Program at Foothills Branch Library this summer.  Wayne Drop distributed water conservation booklets, pencils, and Water Use it Wisely tattoos to children before they attended the water conservation-themed puppet show, “Zoner and the Drip.”  At the puppet show, which was performed by the Great Arizona Puppet Theater, children and adults learned about the importance of conserving water every day!
