Walking through my neighborhood each day, I am pleasantly surprised to see how many people are adhering to the watering guidelines. It is, however, extremely frustrating to continuously observe a few people who are displaying very green, beautifully maintained lawns and who are watering on unapproved days! We are in a serious drought and it is imperative that all of us comply with the restrictions!
So, on the off chance that these two houses, one block away from each other, are unaware of the rules, please let me remind you: If your address ends in an even number (like a 4 on Marsala Way and a 6 on Ruisdael Drive) your watering days are Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. If, however, your address ends in an odd number, you can water on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. Let’s hope everyone is concerned enough to follow the guidelines correctly, and conserve as needed.
