Drought Management

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.

Energy Management

In an effort to promote energy conservation and reduce our energy budget we are kindly asking all building occupants to follow this checklist prior to leaving school for all school breaks.

We sincerely appreciate your help in this effort to reduce energy consumption and to save vital resources.

School Break Shutdown Checklist

In an effort to promote energy conservation and reduce our energy budget LUSD is asking all teachers to follow this checklist prior to leaving school for all school breaks.

  • Make sure all classroom lighting is turned off
  • Unplug all appliances (mini-refrigerators, microwaves, battery chargers and radios) that are not required for critical health and safety concerns during the break.  Please make sure to defrost and clean out refrigerators several days before leaving.  Also, please address any moisture concerns related to the defrosting process before you leave the room. 
  • Ensure that the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system is not running (if controlled locally).
  • If air conditioning temperature is controlled by staff members please set heating to 55° and cooling to 90°
  • If you observe any HVAC system running during non-occupied times, please immediately report that energy concern to Maintenance and Operations at telephone number 331-7193.
  • Please note that HVAC services will be suspended during the break period unless formal request for operation have been approved prior to the break.

We appreciate your help in this effort to reduce unnecessary utility cost during this school break.  In the weeks following our break we will report back with how much was saved through your efforts.
