The Orland City Council, at its June 1st meeting, enacted a water conservation ordinance and temporary water conservation measures. However, the City Council at their October 5th meeting changed the times for lawn watering. Lawns may now be watered between 5:00pm and 10:00am. No change to the 3 days per week regulation. The time for lawn watering was changed to help residents comply with water conservation ordinances as temperatures cool and daylight diminishes seasonally. We appreciate everyone’s spirit of cooperation in this. Our community is on track to meet its State-required objective of 25% reduction in water usage June-November. http://sustainableenergysystemz.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/saving-water1.jpg
