After nearly a decade of drought, our region is facing severe water shortages that can’t be solved by one good year of rain. Let’s help address the challenges impacting our region’s water supply by bringing back those water-saving habits that Monrovians excelled at during the height of the drought. In our arid climate, water conservation isn’t a habit that comes and goes; it’s a way of life!
To help spread the word of why water conservation is so important for Monrovia, please watch and share Monrovia’s new water conservation video to help spread the word about what’s happening in our region! You can watch the full video online on the Monrovia Conserves webpage, where you will also find additional information on how you can make a difference by conserving water and limiting your outdoor water use.
You may be tempted to use extra water outdoors this week because of the heat wave we’ve been experiencing. But when it’s this hot, grass is meant to get a little brown! Please remember to water early in the morning or late at night to minimize water loss, and only water once every four days. As outlined in the mandatory Phase IV Water Conservation Regulations, outdoor watering should be limited to:
About once per week (no more than every fourth day)
No more than 15 minutes per landscaped area.
Note: The 15-minute limit does not apply to drip irrigation systems, new planting of low-water usage plants, or if reclaimed water is being used as permitted by law.
Only before 8:00 a.m. or after 6:00 p.m.
Be sure to visit Monrovia Conserves for more information on Phase IV Water Regulations and for tips on how individuals can help our community save water together!
