Water Conservation Efforts: Aiming for a Different Shade of Green
June 2018 – We are aware of the yellowing or browning of some of our parks in the District at this time. We are adjusting the water levels at all parks as a part of our new water conservation efforts. We have been incrementally raising the level of watering in our parks since June 11th and will be adjusting those levels until we obtain a color of green that is aesthetically attractive and sustainable. The specific areas we are not looking to make green again are around some trails and small passive areas of some parks throughout the District. Thank you for your patience as we adjust our irrigation systems to meet this new water conservation goal.
Summerlong Efforts – In order to conserve water and be mindful of our water usage, resources, and California’s water shortage, we have to allow some of our grass to go dormant this summer. Although the grass may lose color, we aim to maintain the health of our lawns and trees by providing enough water to preserve their existing root systems. As the summer heats up, we will monitor the weather and increase watering when we are able.
With budget limitations, recent droughts, and the rising costs associated with providing clean water, park and recreation agencies must rethink their approach. At the Cordova Recreation and Park District, we take water conservancy seriously. Our staff is always looking for ways to implement water conservation technology, drought tolerant plants, and resource-conscious designs.
Check back for watering updates throughout the summer.
