The City of Charlottetown and the Winter River-Tracadie Bay Watershed group have teamed up to encourage water conservation.

The two groups have enlisted children from the area in videos providing water conservation tips.

"These videos and this partnership are important steps in our conservation efforts," said Coun. Eddie Rice, chair of the utility committee.

"We're encouraged by the conservation efforts of the citizens of Charlottetown already."

The video series, entitled Save Some Water for Me, will be aired on Eastlink and social media sites and will be complemented by posters that will be displayed throughout the city.

Charlottetown gets all its water from the Winter River watershed. The watershed group is concerned that the Brackley branch of the Winter River has run dry, six weeks before it ran dry last year.
