WATER CONSERVATION IN OUR CITY PARKS: The Community Services Department is very conscious of the water issues that the entire state is facing. We are developing plans to re-tool our entire irrigation control system. We are also working with the Metropolitan Water District and Municpal Water District of Orange County to take advantage of funding being made available to retrofit park irrigation control systems. Our plan is to utilize technology to control the irrigation in parks and other City faciltiies to operate based on weather data and be able to automatically shut off during rain or in the event of a broken irrigation pipe. The systems are also able to be monitored and manipulated remotely, allowing for better control overall. We anticipate that these changes will eventually result in a significant water savings in our parks. The City is also looking at other alternatives, such as low-flow fixtures and other devices that will help save our limited resources. This department and the City continue to look for ways to conserve and looking at all viable alternatives to do this.
