Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez toured the Synthetic Grass Warehouse headquarters in Anaheim, Calif. September 22nd, 2015. She met with SGW staff to discuss water conservation as well as present SGW Co-owners Victor Lanfranco and Joe Ayoub with the Congressional recognition.
“Congresswoman Sanchez is a great supporter of the artificial grass industry,” said Lanfranco. “She believes it is the smartest and safest way to conserve water.”
Rep. Sanchez supports the improvement of California’s water system as well as increase the deliverable water supply in Orange County, which was included in her 2009 bill that help fund the Orange County Groundwater Replenishment System.
“Any efforts to combat California’s historic drought while also boosting our economy are commendable,” said Rep. Sanchez. “I’m proud to see a local Orange County business spearheading these efforts.”
On September 3rd, 2015, Synthetic Grass Warehouse was recognized by Rep. Sanchez for their dedication to water conservation through inventive synthetic grass development and design as well as public education at a recent Water Drought Briefing and Recognition event in the city of Santa Ana, California.
“As we enter the fourth consecutive year of drought in California, it is important to keep a pulse on the current water supplies and how we can further conserve water,” said Rep. Sanchez. “In Washington, I recently co-sponsored H.R. 2983, the Drought Recovery and Resilience Act of 2015 which would address innovative water financing, improving infrastructure and water management, planning for future droughts and other important factors.
This event was open to the public where information about the current drought status was presented by a panel of water resource experts. In addition to SGW, Rep. Sanchez also acknowledged several homeowners and businesses who also took a lead in revamping their properties into drought-friendly landscapes.
