Fwd: Warm Weather Reminder: Adjust Irrigation Controllers to 10% of Summer Use

Our warm spring weather has arrived, drying our soil after our last rainstorm. So you might need to set your irrigation controller to water about 10% to 20% of normal summer use, or to one day per week. 

Please don't forget – we are still in the middle of a drought, and the city of Long Beach has water prohibitions in place. Watering is only allowed on Monday's, Thursday's and Saturday's for 10 minutes each station.


Conserve water, because we all have better things to spend our money on than water that's just being wasted!  


Your Long Beach Weekly Weather Forecast:

Almost no chance of rain in the coming week, with temperatures quickly rising to the high 80's this weekend, then cooling to the mid-70's later in the week.
