You Can Help Avoid Localized Flooding

News Image

If you have a stormdrain inlet/grate near your home, one of the best ways to help avoid localized flooding is to keep it clear of leaves and debris. To remove leaves and debris away from grates, take a rake or shovel and drag the debris sideways away from the grate. Do not leave the leaves or debris in the gutter or near the grate as this will cause the debris to be washed right back onto the grate. Always use proper safety precautions! If you are going to step off of the sidewalk to clean grates, be sure to look for oncoming traffic and other pedestrians.

***DROUGHT UPDATE***

News ImageUntil we complete construction of our Surface Water Project, groundwater remains Woodland's only source of water. Due in part to the drought, the City's groundwater levels are now the lowest in recent history. Currently the City has 19 groundwater wells. Some groundwater wells are already 'off line’ due to contaminant levels and others may need to be shut down if water levels keep dropping. This could result in water shortages and mandatory restrictions on water use in the near future.

You can help avoid water shortages by limiting water use from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. when the demand on our water supply is at its maximum. We are urging customers to refrain from watering lawns or irrigating landscaping during these times.

Water users’ efforts to conserve water have already resulted in a 20% reduction in water use from recent years and helped the situation from being worse. Please continue doing what you can to conserve and avoid using water, as much as possible, during the above "peak" hours.

By working together, we can avoid water shortages and protect the groundwater wells that we rely upon for our water supply. For additional information and tips on easy ways to save water, please visit cityofwoodland.org/waterconservation, and/or contact our water conservation staff at conservewater@cityofwoodland.org; (530) 661-2067.

Thank you,

Take Action to Protect Your Water Supply

News ImageWoodland is currently asking water customers to voluntarily cut back water use by 20% in order to prevent potential future water shortages. 2014 is starting out as the third dry year in a row.

As the demand for water increases during the summer months, we could face a shortage in water supplies. For tips on conserving water both indoors and outdoors, please visit www.cityofwoodland.org/waterconservation.
