Water Authority: Storm expected, turn off the sprinklers
Businesses and residents in San Diego County were asked Thursday to help conserve water by shutting off their landscape watering systems in advance of a forecasted storm expected to hit the region.
San Diego County Water Authority officials said irrigation systems can be turned off for several weeks following a significant storm.
The National Weather Service has forecast that about a half-inch to an inch of rain will fall in the coastal and valley areas starting late tomorrow and continuing through Saturday.
According to the SDCWA, a one-week hiatus from using landscape watering systems throughout the region could save 2,000 acre feet of water, enough to meet the needs of 4,000 households for a year.
