“Each month, from January to May, state officials measure the snowpack in the Sierra Nevada mountains. This important "snow survey" helps forecast the abundance of the state's water supply for the year. The first survey of the year recorded the snowpack water content at 134% of normal for that time of year. Yet on May 2, the survey results were gloomy -- the water content in the snowpack had shrunk to only 17% of normal.”
Save Our Water unveiled its new “Sprinklers 101” web-based resource today which provides a host of information and online tools about water-efficient residential irrigation. Timed to coincide with May’s Water Awareness Month, this new section of the Save Our Water website offers online, printed and video resources on water-efficient irrigation for homeowners and landscape professionals.
