Cutting Back on Watering During Rain Storms

Posted: Updated:
Even though we're getting moisture this week, we're still in a drought, so Truckee Meadows Water Authority is reminding customers to conserve water when we do get help from Mother Nature.

“If you've got your sprinklers set and all of a sudden there's a little cloud burst overcast, if it's just overcast cut it back a little bit and if it's actually raining you're getting some moisture, go ahead and cut it back and save some money and save us some water,” says Andy Gebhardt, TMWA Customer Services Manager.

TMWA says since it's still May, plants don't need as much water as during the summer time - and with more clouds now watering just once a day should be sufficient.

Due to the drought, TMWA is recommending customers to cut back water use by 10% and not watering when it rains is a way to do that.
