Tip of the Month

Cool Down & Save

Whew, it's a hot one today! Keep blinds and curtains drawn during the day to keep the heat out. Open up windows at night to catch that cool Delta breeze.

Legislative Updates in the Water World & What It Means For You. 


Summer Water Supply
Starting June 1st, Term 91 went into effect, curtailing water rights in order to keep water quality levels acceptable in the Delta. This is a normal summer occurrence which leaves Woodland with 90-95% of water supply for our projected demand. Doing a little everyday to cut back on your water use could help us avoid pumping groundwater or purchasing water elsewhere.

55 Gallons per Day per Person Indoor Water Goal
Recently, Governor Brown signed Assembly Bills 1668 and 606, which set an indoor, per-person water use goal of 55 gallons per day. This will be added up to make a city-wide target, which Woodland is set to easily make. Last winter, when there is little to no irrigation, Woodlanders used an average of 54 gallons a day per person. To learn more, check out this tongue and cheek article by the Sacramento Bee, "No, Californians, you won't be fined $1,000 if you shower and do laundry the same day".

Properly Dispose of Your Pet Waste.


Did you know that pet waste washed from your yard can harm natural resources and wildlife? That’s because water that flows into our storm drains enter our waterways untreated where fish and wildlife live. Pet waste can carry harmful bacteria that can contaminate water and harm animals. Pet waste should only go in the trash (gray lid), even if it is in a compostable bag. It should NEVER go in green waste street piles or organics carts (brown lid).
