Director Sapanai stated that public education regarding water conservation was of prime importance, advised that the District should have prior approval to any literature being distributed and asked Mr. Reasoner what the timing would be for phase 1 and phase 2, and if acceptance of one phase was contingent on acceptance of all phases. Mr. Reasoner advised that it could be implemented in April and May of this year and that the phases could be accepted individually. Director Veit stated that a public awareness program would be a great benefit and questioned the Districts liability under the proposal regarding written/dispersed recommendations.
