To celebrate Earth Day, April 22, 2015, California Water Service (Cal Water) and Marysville city representatives, including Mayor Ricky Samayoa, hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to commemorate the new Water Conservation Demonstration Garden at city hall. The garden features low-water-use plants, including trees, shrubs and groundcovers with signs indicating the names of the plants.

On Cal Water’s website, District Manager Lee Seidel commented, “This garden will show Marysville residents how beautiful a low-water-use garden can be and how they can create drought-tolerant landscapes in their own yards.” The garden is expected to save about 175,000 gallons of water per year.
