WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Jan. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The City of West Hollywood is encouraging residents and businesses to continue efforts to use less water and to promote conservation. Winter storms have brought rain and snow to Southern California; however, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor, a project of The National Drought Mitigation Center, much of Southern California is still experiencing extreme to exceptional drought conditions.
The U.S. Drought Monitor rates drought intensity on a scale of D0 (abnormally dry) to D4 (exceptionally dry). Nearly every region of California is still affected by scarce supplies of water.
West Hollywood residents and businesses are served by two water utility companies: Beverly Hills Public Works and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP). Both utilities encourage their customers to continue to use water efficiently.
As part of its efforts to encourage water conservation, the City of West Hollywood produced a 60-second public service announcement (PSA) video: Winter is Coming! But the Drought is Far From Over. Designed as a mock TV-series preview trailer, the Emmy Award-winning PSA is based on the hit HBO series Game of Thrones and takes viewers on a dramatic journey — instead of traveling through the mythical land of Westeros, viewers travel on a storybook tour of what a fictional West Hollywood may look like if the drought continues.
