CRPD's Water Conservation Plan

Message From Our General Manager                                             

Our Water Situation is Serious
Spring 2014

Last year was the driest year on record for our area and the Governor has declared a drought emergency throughout California.  Southern California water agencies served by MWD reportedly have enough water stored to get us through another year.  But what if there is below average rainfall over the next twelve months?

Turf Conversions                                                                             

In order to conserve water and sustain most of the grass and landscaping, irrigation has been turned off in portions of nearly every park.  In these areas, the grass will die and the turf will be converted to some other ground cover, such as wood chips.  Click on the links below to view maps of where turf conversions will occur in the parks.
