The city ’s Green Living classes, sponsored by the Glendale Water Services Department, Conservation and Sustainable Living Division, will take place this month.
The series is designed to help residents learn to conserve water and live sustainably. The city in June declared a Stage 1 Drought Watch, which will target a 5% water-reduction goal at municipal properties. Glendale is also encouraging residents and businesses to voluntarily conserve water.
