State Officials: Stop Watering Your Lawn
Posted Monday, March 10th 2014 @ 6am  by KFBK News

Coil up the hoses -- we're being told by state officials to stop watering our lawns.  

Doug Carlson with the California Department of Water Resources says every drop saved at this time will ensure there's enough water for everyone when summer arrives. 

"Do not continue to water with your own landscaping mechanisms. In other words, turn off your sprinklers, your plants and your lawns just don't need any extra water right now, they got plenty in those storms," Carlson said. 

The DWR says we have to start preparing for a potentially dry year again next year, adding that everyone needs to do their part.
