The Governor of California has instituted a mandate to all State agencies, including school Districts to immediately take steps to conserve water. In addition, there is a state-wide moratorium placed on new, non-essential landscaping projects. The state-wide goal is to reduce water consumption by 25%.
On May 26, 2015, the Lincoln City Council adopted regulations and restrictions that are in compliance with the new state regulations. The City needs to meet a mandatory reduction of 36% of its total water consumption. The regulations are effective immediately. Please see link for further information: http://www.lincolnca.gov/Home/Components/News/News/48/73?backlist=%2f
Anticipating the water conservation mandates, Western Placer Unified School District has taken a pro-active approach to water conservation for the last 3 years and has significantly reduced water consumption at all campuses and District properties.
With the current mandatory restrictions placed on landscape irrigation WPUSD is reducing all watering to 2 days per week (Monday and Thursday after 9 p.m. and before 8 a.m.) as mandated by the City of Lincoln. Please contact the maintenance & grounds department @ (916) 434-5000 to report suspected leaks, broken sprinklers or water run-off at any of our campuses.
Some key points in our water conservation best management practices include:
