Our request for an exemption to the 2015 TDPUD Emergency Drought Regulations (on behalf of the community) was approved this afternoon (6/3/15) for "Plant containers, trees, shrubs, groundcover, and vegetable gardens may be watered as needed when using automatic drip irrigation or hand watering." You can still have your planter boxes THIS summer. Be sure to use water-holding gel in your containers and MULCH your landscapes! NO BARE SOIL! We STILL have to reduce our overall water consumption by 28%. Tuesday & Friday for lawns, established landscapes and any spray heads and as needed for efficient drip irrigation. PUD
We spent 5 stress filled days researching other districts, communicating with the PUD, discussing options, drafting proposals and ultimately submitting the request for exemption that they ultimately approved.
