Who needs sprinklers when you’ve got rain? The fact is – no one does. So turn off your sprinklers! State water officials are stressing that message as they ask residents to shut off their sprinkler systems because Mother Nature already watered California’s lawns with her recent rains. The sprinkler shutdown will save precious water and help the state make it through the long, dry, summer months ahead.
This week, Save Our Water is launching a new set of radio ads aimed at raising awareness of the severity of the drought and the need to conserve. Even with rain falling this week in some areas of the state, the need to save water is as real as ever.
California firefighters have joined effort to save water! In the midst of one of the driest periods in the State’s recorded history, CAL FIRE is heeding the Governor’s call to reduce water usage at all State facilities while maintaining a high state of readiness.
