Sacramento utility dept. holds free water conservation class
By Matt Weiser
Sacramento residents are invited to attend a free class on water
conservation June 3.
The class, hosted by the City of Sacramento Utilities Department, is
designed to help residents comply with new watering rules while also
maintaining a beautiful yard. The city also faces a state mandate to reduce
water consumption 20 percent by 2020.
Last year, the city adopted new permanent watering rules that allow
landscape irrigation only on alternate days in summer, based on address, and
only one day a week in winter. The goal is to avoid water waste whether
nature brings drought or normal rainfall. Participants will also learn how
to get rebates for water-efficient appliances.
The class will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. at the South Natomas Community
Center, 2921 Truxel Road. Additional classes will be held throughout the
summer on June 26, July 19 and 31, Aug. 23, Sept. 22 and Oct. 30
