State authorities authorized a policy on May 24, 2022, to reduce water use in California by 10 to 20%, which includes a blanket prohibition on watering decorative lawns in subdivision common areas and on all commercial premises. As officials work to save water during a severe drought, sweeping restrictions on outdoor water use go into effect for more than 6 million Southern California homeowners. The intense drought has resulted in bringing the region’s driest two decades in more than 1,200 years. Among the restrictions, California residents are restricted to watering their lawns no more than once a week in many areas.
On Tuesday, the California State Water Resources Control Board declared emergency restrictions to decrease water consumption by 10 to 20% this year, prompting local water providers to apply their measures to make this a reality. Moreover, as Laurel Firestone, a member of the California State Water Resources Control Board, cautioned during the board meeting on Tuesday, some cities may be forced to make difficult judgments about what is “needed in this new normal.”
In most houses across the country, outdoor irrigation accounts for 50-70% of household water use. Each year, it takes around 685 gallons of water to apply one inch of water over 1,000 square feet of lawn to keep it green. It puts a significant burden on the local freshwater supply just to keep the lawn green. What choices do you have for making a difference?
