Mandatory drought restrictions

By From page A5 | June 27, 2014


I just returned from a bike ride through my neighborhood and was pleasantly surprised to see how many lawns were showing large patches of dried grass. I consider these “badges of honor” which show that these home owners are respecting the mandatory watering restrictions. Thank you to these families, and to anyone who has replaced their lawns with drought-tolerant ground cover, for doing your part to conserve our precious, non-renewable water resources.

For those who still have lush, green lawns, it is very likely that you are using more than your share of water. El Dorado Irrigation District does have a reporting system for water wasters. You can either call EID’s main line to make a report or file a report online through its Website.
