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 response to the current ongoing severe California drought, rapidly escalating water prices, and statewide policies and laws encouraging the reduction in the use of outdoor water (especially turf), the Conejo Recreation and Park District is continuing its water conservation efforts. These include:

  • Projects to convert non-essential turf to wood chips and/or drought tolerant plants.  Throughout the Conejo Valley, we have turned off water on portions of nearly every park, totaling approximately 70 acres.  See maps below for each park.
  • Projects to modify and upgrade irrigation systems
  • Projects to use reclaimed water for irrigation
  • Modifying the annual field refurbishment process

To learn more about CRPD's use of glyphosate ("Round-Up") during the turf conversion process in the parks, CLICK HERE.

You too can help us in our efforts... report park irrigation problems and concerns by participating in the Do Report Irrigation Problems (D.R.I.P.) Water Watcher Program.  Go to the bottom of this page and use the simple form to report water leaks, broken sprinklers, over-watering due to malfunctioning controllers, or anything that results in water waste.
