Water authority requests sprinkler turnoff

Businesses and residents in San Diego County were asked Thursday to help conserve water by shutting off their landscape watering systems for at least the next week in advance pending rain storms.

If all the sprinklers in the region were shut off for just one week, as much as 2,000 acre-feet of water would be conserved, according to the San Diego County Water Authority. That’s enough water to meet the annual needs of about 4,000 households.

According to the National Weather Service, two storms are bearing down on Southern California, with the wet weather expected to arrive tonight and continue through the weekend.

The need to conserve water is necessitated by years of drought and reduced deliveries to Southern California.
