Turn Your Sprinklers Off
From the City of Oklahoma City’s Water Conservation division:
With all the beneficial rain, there is no need to water the lawn or landscaping for at least 10 days to two weeks. With more rainfall in the forecast, sprinkler systems can even go unused for the rest of the month.
It’s easy to “set it and forget it” when beginning to water landscapes in the spring. However, it’s important to watch the weather forecast and reset irrigation systems accordingly.
Watering in the rain or overwatering is not good for the grass or the city’s water supply. All residents and commercial property management companies should turn irrigation systems off before or during heavy rains.
