Commissioner Martin lifted the drought warning

4/12/17- Commissioner Martin lifted the drought warning, but cited very important suggestions on how to save water, including:

  • Do not over-water lawns and landscaping. Two times per week for 30 minutes in the morning or late afternoon during drier periods is typically sufficient.
  • Use a hose with a hand-nozzle to water flowers and shrubs.
  • Avoid watering lawns and plants during the heat of the day, since much of this water will evaporate without helping your lawn.
  • See the full press release for details:
