IMPACT – WATER SHORTAGE IN CA
Weather extremes brought on by climate change are impacting California’s water supply. Eastern Municipal Water District has tips that will help protect and ensure critical water supplies for future generations.
Adding mulch around plants helps reduce evaporation, reducing or removing grass and replacing it with water-wise landscaping will save up to 50 percent of water needed outdoors. Residential turf removal rebates are available and can be accessed through SoCal Water$mart.
