The Water Zone is a weekly radio show hosted by industry veterans Mike Baron and Rob Starr, who collectively have over 50 years of experience in the irrigation business.
“The drought impacting much of California is a very serious issue to all of us,” said Baron, Water Conservation Manager with Toro’s Irrigation Business in Riverside, California. “The destinies of California’s agricultural, environmental and urban interests are now forever intertwined, so it’s important that we work together on solutions to best protect this critical resource, being water. This radio show has been a great venue for bringing together great leaders on the topic of water conservation and use efficiency.”
The show can be heard every Thursday at 6 p.m. PDT on NBC News Radio KCAA 1050 AM, KCAA 106.5 FM, or online at www.kcaaradio.com.
