With unusually cooler weather and substantial rainfall during a significant portion of August, the city’s irrigation consumption decreased over the past several weeks. Every drop of water we conserve this season directly impacts the water bank. With approximately one month until the end of the water year, we can continue to conserve and build water levels for next year. According to some preliminary forecasts, this coming winter is predicted to be colder and wetter than last year. The wetter part will be welcomed, as the State has faced a multi-year drought period.

Please note that during the month of September, watering should be reduced to 21 minutes every six days. If rain is received, the days between irrigation cycles can be increased.
