CENTRAL VALLEY AG RETAILER LEADING DAM FIGHT FOR WATER STORAGE 

Ag leaders join GAR to organize water rally for water storage

Reedley, CA - Gar Tootelian, Inc. (GAR) is teaming up with Ag businesses and organizations in the Central Valley to demand more water storage.  #moreDAMstorage, My Job Depends on Ag, Stamoules Produce Company, Families Protecting the Valley, California Water Alliance and the Fresno Grizzlies will hold a Central Valley Water Rally at Chukchansi Park at the Grizzlies home game on Friday, August 21, 2015.

“It’s time to stop talking about water and plan for water storage.  California’s future depends on reliable, clean water,” said Greg Musson, President of Gar Tootelian, Inc. “GAR takes great pride in supporting long-term water storage solutions for the health and sustainability of our Valley.” 

The Rally will be an opportunity to learn more about Ag and the organizations working together on water storage solutions. GAR is committed to supporting long-term water storage solutions including Temperance Flat, Sites Reservoir, Shasta Dam, San Luis Dam, and in-Delta storage/modifications for California and its future. The environment is the state’s single largest consumer of water at 50 percent, with just 40 percent going to farmers and 10 percent to urban use according to a 2014 California water Alliance report. It takes about 240 gallons of water to make a cell phone, 700 gallons to make a cotton shirt and 2,600 gallons to make one pair of denim jeans.

Established in 1949, GAR is a leading philanthropic leader in the Central Valley and works to promote education and awareness on the importance of valley agriculture. Partnerships include:  the Fresno Grizzlies’ Farm Grown Program, the Valley Farm at the Fresno Chaffee Zoo and Valley PBS’ Valleys Gold and Education through Agriculture.
