The Drought is Over in Carlsbad? Think Again
We have been blessed with plenty of rain in the last couple of months that has taken off the edge from the severe drought here in California that we have been experiencing for a number of years. While reservoirs appear to be at their highest levels in some time, the attitude that the drought is over and there are no issues, and we can resume watering as we wish, is a risky one…and wrong.
Residents - Be aware thatCarlsbad still has watering restrictions, and while they are less restrictive than before when we were in a Stage 3 drought emergency, the request is still to only water 3 times per week, at best.
Watering is to be done BEFORE 6 am and AFTER 10 pm to reduce water loss via evaporation. And the watering should last for no more than 10 minute per watering station. Residents can split this up into 2 5-minute segments morning and night as 10 minutes may cause run-off which is also wasteful. We often see water running down the side of the street in some areas which is wasteful.
Even numbered homes are to water on Monday, Thursday and Saturday, while odd numbered homes should water on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday.
Apartments, condos and businesses are requested to water on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Despite the rain we are still a desert climate and should make water conservation an important part of our lives. Water is still a very precious resource, whether there is a drought or not. We pay dearly for it as well, with recent rate hikes.
