Public Works News Release 2 September 2014 Page 1 of 1
The City of Bishop offers a water conservation incentive program to help its water customers save water. The program can provide some water saving items free like hose nozzles and can provide rebates on other water saving items like new sprinkler systems.
$100 rebates are available for water wasting toilets, washing machines, and dishwashers that are replaced with water saving models. A $250 rebate is available for new sprinkler systems.
Specific requirements are available at the city website or by contacting Bishop Public Works.
For most free items you just need to stop by the Bishop Public Works
office, fill out a short form, and pick them up. The incentives are available only to water customers of the City of Bishop and are limited to one per customer account.
Saving water saves money, reduces water rates, protects groundwater, is the right thing to do, and is now required by the state.

Branch Managers, Corinna of Bishop and Marian of Lone Pine are key players in each of their communities.
Congratulations to Corinna (Boston Red Sox Superfan) for becoming the newly-elected Treasurer of the Bishop Chamber of Commerce. Corinna is here below accepting the AltaOne Federal Credit Union CEO’s Ice Bucket Challenge.
And, Marian (with her sons) painted the water tower in Lone Pine…
Plus, they record their own commercials…
#teamKIBS & your local AltaOne FCU
AltaOne members can now access some of the most cutting-edge technological tools to help manage their finances – MSC Online, mobile apps, BudgetPro, BillPayer, Popmoney, etc. Outside the AltaOne world, technology continues to explode. Products such as Google Glass — the amazing eyewear that conducts Google searches, snaps photos and videos and tracks trending news — are already here.
Let us take a gander at what other items are on the horizon that are destined to “wow” the world.
A portable retina scanner may soon be available to help fight identity theft and protect your personal security. The tiny device is only 5″ long x 3.5″ wide. The scanners can be used by financial institutions to identity members conducting transactions in an efficient and unassuming manner. Look for these devices to really take off when the technology is incorporated into a smartphone.
How annoyed do you get when you realize the beer bottle is not a twist-off and you cannot find a bottle opener? Introducing “bionic fingers.”
These robotic devices, which are still just prototypes, simplify such tasks as peeling a banana and unscrewing bottle caps. Developed by MIT researchers, users wear the “supernumerary robotic fingers” on the wrist. The device is equipped with two “fingers” that move in-sync with the real fingers.
As if stepping on a scale is not difficult enough for some folks. Now there is a scale that not only displays your weight — it also discloses your body mass index, heart rate and fat mass.
The Withings Smart Body Analyzer is quite the know-it-all. The $150 device also knows the indoor air quality and room temperature.
We will be far more impressed if the scale can tactfully recommend the right diet for users, as well.
“Holographic telepresence” transmits a 3-D moving image to each destination – giving the appearance that you are actually in the room with your associates.
The technology already exists for other purposes. For example, it has recreated deceased rapper Tupac Shakur’s image for a music festival.
The Polish company Leia (named after the Star Wars’ Princess Leia), has produced the Leia Display XL, which projects images onto a cloud of water vapor. This technology is destined to achieve widespread popularity. Expect to see it marketed within about a year.
