Recent storms have obliterated severe drought in the area. Moreover, the latest drought monitor does not include the heavy to torrential rainfall that fell last Wednesday, so further drought improvements are expected. However, it is always a good idea to practice water conservation.
Some ways to conserve include:
Only water landscapes to maintain adequate soil moisture.
Only water lawn if rainfall has not fallen in 1-2 weeks.
Use a sprinkler which makes larger water droplets.
Turn sprinklers toward the lawn and not the pavement.
Avoid watering on windy days.
Turn soaker hoses holes downward, facing the grass.
