Check landscaping for overwatering

The subject of the day is overwatering.

We walk all around downtown Los Altos in the early morning, and it’s amazing how much water we see on pavements, and even running down the streets.

Please, condo and apartment dwellers and business owners, take a minute to review your landscape watering and determine if it is more than sufficient.

This is our responsibility as residents; the city controls parks and essential civic landscaping only. You’ll be thankful to have the extra water you save by cutting back now when it’s needed for fire season – and even your daily shower.

Please, do your part.
