Framed in the foyer of Page Springs Cellars is a plaque certifying that Cornville winemaker Eric Glomski helped keep nearly 1.4 million gallons of water in the Verde River last year.  

Rainbow Acres, a Camp Verde-based residential community for adults with disabilities, was similarly recognized after working to preserve 1.2 million gallons on behalf of the river.  

And a local malt-maker and river enthusiast has contributed more than 400,000 gallons of water savings, with plans to add 700,000 next year.
