Is City Hall doing its part?
Yes. The City has:

• Completed landscape water audits of Temple City Park and Live Oak Park.
• Retrofitted plumbing fixtures at city facilities and Live Oak Park Community Center.
• Ceased watering of ornamental turf on public street medians and certain areas of city parks.
• Ceased outdoor irrigation during, and 48 hours following, measurable precipitation.
• Replaced park irrigation systems with new sprinklers for increased water efficiency.

Meanwhile, the City is actively seeking funding for continued water efficient upgrades, What’s more, it was recently granted the Water Smart City Award, which recognizes the City’s commitment to reduce water consumption at city facilities, to adopt city policies for further water conservation, and to publicize available water conservation programs to its nearly 38,000 residents.
