DON’T IRRIGATE BETWEEN 9:00 A.M. AND 6:00 P.M.!

The District does not have electrical power for our pumps between 1:00 P.M. and 5:00 P.M. during the summer and must rely upon the water in the storage reservoirs. Do not irrigate during these hours unless absolutely necessary. Also during these hours much of this water evaporates and does not help your plants.
