After three straight months of not meeting the State’s 32 percent reduction target, Turlock water customers delivered in November with a 33 percent water savings. While a well-deserved congratulations is due, we must continue to be diligent with water conservation efforts.
With winter months being some of the hardest to conserve, it is imperative everyone continues to do their part. Much of the 33 percent reduction is likely attributed to people turning off their sprinkler systems. The City of Turlock encourages everyone to shut down their sprinkler system during the winter months when landscape watering is not necessary. The winter and wet months provide the perfect opportunity for groundwater levels to recover. By turning off sprinkler systems, it maximizes the recovery of groundwater. For those with indoor plants, keep a bucket in the shower and/or collect rainwater to keep those plants alive and healthy.
