Long Beach: Mayor Robert Garcia released the following statement on the retirement of Long Beach Water Department Director Kevin Wattier:

“Kevin Wattier has been an incredible leader for our Water a Department, ensuring not just a consistent supply of quality water for Long Beach, but working to conserve water and improve services to residents. Under his leadership, Long Beach has become a statewide leader in conservation efforts through innovative programs like lawn to garden and using reclaimed water for irrigation. Kevin will be missed. Moving forward, I look forward to working with our Water Commissioners to meet the immediate challenges of the drought and to ensure we remain a leader in water conservation."
