Lodi Unified is being proactive with Water Conservation.
Maintenance and Operations is taking important steps to be in compliance with reduced watering schedules which may vary depending on the location of each district site.
We are embracing water saving technology as follows:
- Restrooms - Keeping fixtures in good repair and fixing leaks promptly.
- Irrigation – Exploring the use of smart technology to keep all watering to a minimum.
- Lawns - Re-landscaping with drought tolerant plants anywhere lawns are not needed. Scheduling irrigation to deliver only what plants need based on monitoring the soil moisture and/or evapotranspiration rate, available from California Irrigation Management System (CIMIS).
- Pools – Swimming pool covers are used at four high schools to reduce evaporation and heat loss.
Please inform us of any leaks, broken sprinklers, main lines, etc., that you may notice at your neighborhood school sites. Contact M&O dispatch at 331-7193.
Your cooperation with this matter is sincerely appreciated.
