Orange County: We’re Saving Water and Fighting the Drought!

Gnorman here bringing good news to you and your Orange County gneighbors!

Thanks to the California-wide effort to save water, officials have stated an overall 29% reduction of water use in May. I am proud to announce that Orange County has saved a collective 26% in comparison with May 2013! Congratulations gneighbors!

Here’s a special shoutout to Orange County’s second largest water district, the Santa Margarita Water District, which increased its savings from 3 percent to 18 percent in under a year. Furthermore, this summer, Santa Margarita will actively prevent overwatering by limiting outdoor watering to no more than 3 days and 36 minutes total per week. Gnorman heartily applauds their efforts.

Another standout Orange County water district that has successfully saved water is the Serrano Water District. An additional round of hearty applause goes to the Serrano Water District which had a 43% water savings in May 2015!

Finally, let’s give applause to the many water agencies throughout Orange County that are making efforts to restrict watering. Follow their lead and get recognized by getting a FREE Gnorman yard sign to proudly showcase your water saving efforts to your gneighbors!

The effort to end overwatering is just beginning; let’s continue doing our part to keep Orange County at the forefront of the #overwateringisout movement. Give yourselves and your gneighbors a friendly smile next time you see each other making efforts to stop overwatering.

    I get very excited when I see a neighbor reorganizing a yard to drought tolerant. After they are finished they are so proud of themselves. Hooray OC ! Let’s keep doing the good deed.
