BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A local non-profit is trying to get you to conserve water by using the message that every drop counts in Kern.
The Water Association of Kern County is using Golden Empire Transit buses to take its message to the streets.
There are six buses with a whole new look that the Water Association is hoping will make you think twice about wasting the precious resource.
"We want them to just think about how they're using water," said Beth Pandol, Executive Director of the Water Association of Kern County. "Hopefully it's resonating with them so they think about oh it really does matter if I run that faucet too much, it really does matter if I over-water my lawn."
Pandol says people should always be thinking about conserving water, but it's especially important during the historic drought we're in.
"It's a scarce resource to this area and everybody needs to do their part in protecting and saving it," said Pandol.
There are simple things everyone can do to save water. For example, you can take a shower which uses less water than a bath, run full loads in the washer and dishwasher, and making sure you turn off the water when you brush your teeth.
Pandol says she hopes the buses are just one step in a bigger plan to conserve water.
The GET buses were wrapped with the conservation message back in December and they will be on the streets for six months.
