With Drought On, City of Santa Barbara Calls for Sprinklers Off

Source: Alison Jordan for the City of Santa Barbara

The City of Santa Barbara is asking residents and businesses to reduce water use by 20 percent.

Right now, the best way to save water is to reduce landscape water use as much as possible and check for leaks.

Now that rain is coming, leave sprinklers off until soil is dry and plants need water. Only water your garden once a week and only if absolutely necessary — save 1,000 gallons or more every day.

We are all in this together!

Call 805.564.5460 for a free water checkup. The city is here to help. Click here for more information.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
