[ARCHIVED] It’s Time to TURN OFF Your Irrigation

News Flash_Turn Off Irrigation

During this historic drought, Santa Rosa and the region have all been working extra hard to make every drop count. This fall and winter, it’s especially important that we all continue to conserve. With weather experts predicting another dry winter, one of the best things we can do is take a break from outdoor irrigation.  

Irrigation accounts for approximately half of average summertime water use. By turning OFF your irrigation this fall we can continue to achieve our community-wide water savings target.  

In the fall, when it’s still warm, we may think irrigation is still necessary, but to conserve energy plants go dormant this time of year as they prepare for their winter rest. This means they require little to no irrigation.  

Whether you water by hand or have an automatic system, let’s all commit to turning off outdoor irrigation until Spring. With our region experiencing severe drought conditions it is unknown if our local reservoirs will recover this winter, so we need to make every drop count now.
