Metropolitan Debuts Summer Water-Saving Advertising Campaign


The campaign asks residents and businesses to “Take A Turn” and help save water during the drought. For the first time, Metropolitan’s entire multi-media outreach campaign will be produced in five languages – English, Spanish, Mandarin, Korean and Vietnamese – to reach more of the region’s diverse audience. “What I think is important about this campaign is how it is an individual call to action,” said Metropolitan board Chairman Randy Record. “This campaign has a simple but powerful message. Every bit that every one of us does to save water will add up to a big savings. And it is now all of our turns to take conservation to the next level.”
