For the first time in California's history, Gov. Jerry Brown has imposed mandatory reductions in water use. According to California.gov/drought, April snow in California was measured at its lowest level on record. "The State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board) announced that Californians in cities and towns reduced their water consumption by just 2.8 percent in February. This dismal conservation rate is the lowest monthly figure since the State Water Board began tracking the data in July 2014." It appears that many urban Californians are attempting to ignore the drought.
It's a topic our industry cannot ignore it and becom the major concern for landscapers around the state. The continuing drought increasingly impacts landscapers as well as everyone in the US. Join us for this special April chat along and share your ideas and concerns on this week's #landscapechat!
