Mayor Garcetti, First Lady Amy Elaine Wakeland and the Getty House Board of Directors convened partners from across the City, including small businesses, Neighborhood Councils, corporate leaders, and local nonprofits to discuss the historic drought and L.A.’s challenge to transform itself to secure a more sustainable future.

The Mayor and special guests discussed his executive directive (issued last fall) asking for a 20% reduction in water use by 2017, the recently released Sustainability City pLAn and the launch of the Save the Drop water conservation awareness campaign. At this event, 2 new PSAs were debuted, narrated by Steve Carrell, Jamie Camil and scored by Moby. They encourage residents to take small steps everyday to curb their water use.
