It’s Time to Turn Off Your Sprinklers
     
Fall and winter bring rain, snow, and decreasing temperatures. To conserve water, we recommend you shut off your sprinklers. Conservation is a California lifestyle, regardless of the season. Winterizing your sprinkler system can also protect your pipes from freezing.
