Former Mayor of Livingston Speaks on Water Conservation Efforts

Last Monday, Arlene Johnson, the former Mayor of the Township of Livingston, NJ, spoke on the water conservation efforts of the town.  Speaking about how important it is for us to save water and many of the things Livingston is doing to carry out this effort.  Among the efforts of Livingston is the rain garden at the library and town hall, installing water conservation lavatory faucets and toilets in the municipal buildings,  giving a workshop on how to make rain barrells, and passing out free rain gauges.

Livingston, NJ was one of five communities chosen by the Rutgers Cooperative Extension Water Resources Program to pilot New Jersey's drinking water conservation pilot program called the New Jersey Water Savers.  The efforts Johnson spoke of last Monday resulted in Livingston receiving the Sustainable Jersey's Innovation Award in 2010.  Other efforts by the town that resulted in this award include "Fix a Leak Week" and "Smart Irrigation Month," bringing awareness and education on how to conserve water.

The former Mayor is now the co-chair of Livingston's Green Team, which works with Livingston's environmental efforts.




Johnson served as mayor and township council member in Livingston, where she championed environmental initiatives, including Livingston Living Green. Johnson currently is co-chair of Livingston's Green Team that coordinates the township's environmental efforts. Her talk begins at 7 p.m. at the West Orange municipal building, 66 Main St.
