Parks Doing Our Part During Drought

Last Updated: 8/5/2014

In 2007 the State of California’s mandated reducing water usage by 20% before the year 2020. We have already met that goal. Now with the City's declaration of Drought Stage 2, which requires 20% reduction for households and a 30% reduction in irrigation for businesses, we continue to look for ways to be more efficient with our water resources in addition to the reductions that have already been achieved.

The strategies that we are using moving forward to ensure that we continue meeting the drought requirements are monitoring irrigations practices, prioritizing water schedules, targeted turf conversion to drought friendly landscapes and further investment in alternative resources.
