Exceptional Drought in OC

Just last week we talked about the drought and we weren’t planning on rounding back until something big changed. A few days later, the most intense level of drought recorded by the U.S. Drought Monitor, exceptional drought, was recorded across most of Orange County. All of Orange County has been in an Extreme Drought (a technical term of art) since February, but this is the first time exceptional drought has been reported.


This situation really shows how vitally important it is for us to be good stewards of our water. We can do that a lot of different ways, but paying extra attention to how we use water outdoors on our lawns and gardens is a critical piece. The fact that misuse of our outdoor water can cause pollution that damages other water resources makes it an even more important area of focus.

Share below what you’ve done to be a good steward and show your gneighbors that they aren’t alone in believing that overwatering is out.

    Shower…I wet my hair well then my body and water has ran for only one minute or so. then I shut the water off! I put shampoo on my hair then I completely lather up with soap and start scrubbing.
    After I have completely scrubbed my entire body I turn water back on to rinse my hair and body of all soap suds for about two minutes.
    Finished! entire time taht water ran from faucet is three to four minutes.

    My sprinklers are set to five minutes on odd days of the month, Five minutes for front and five for back yard.

    When I wash my car I use the mist setting of hose nozzle and use very sparingly, the run off does not even reach the approach of my downhill driveway.

    When rinsing dishes I run water at about five % of its capacity.
