(Best Syndication News) The County of San Bernardino and the State of California will be working together on a project to improve the drinking water of Pioneertown, a small tourist destination near Yucca Valley.

Since the 1992 Lander’s Earthquake there have been problems with the water supply, according to George Watson, the Chief of Staff for County Supervisor Neil Derry. The water quality has continued to suffer since the 7.3 magnitude earthquake. The water became so bad that it is now “undrinkable.”

Last week the Board of Supervisors (BOS) voted to give the Special Districts Department $400,000 to work in conjunction with the California State Division of Drinking Waters and Environmental Management.

(Best Syndication News) This week the weather forecast is for temperatures to hit the 100 degree mark for the Inland Empire and Desert regions of Southern California. The extreme warmth has prompted Southern California Edison (SCE) to ask their customers to use less power during the day.

The conservation of energy usage will help ease the increased demand during the extreme heat. Additionally, using less electricity will help if there is an unexpected power emergency, such as a mechanical problem or wildfire.

SCE explains that one benefit to conserving energy is a reduced electric bill. Customers who use air conditioning can see an increase of up to 30 percent in their bill.
