Recent rain continues to improve the drought situation across the Rio Grande Valley and Deep South Texas. The top slide shows the current update, which was released today by the National Drought Monitor, and the slide below is last week's.
Water conservation is still important.
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.
