Saturday, August 29th, 10am-2pm – Free Event Offers DIY Solutions to Save Water
Looking for practical and affordable ways to save water? Be sure to head down to Santa Rosa City Hall on Saturday, August 29th from 10am-2pm for DIY Drought Solutions. Explore a range of ‘do-it-yourself’ solutions to help you meet (and even exceed!) statewide drought restrictions. This free, family-friendly event is hosted by Santa Rosa Water, a member of the Sonoma-Marin Saving Water Partnership, and in coordination with Daily Acts.
The event will focus on outdoor water conservation, which accounts for approximately 50% of average residential water use. However, this can be dramatically reduced by adopting simple behavior changes and making water smart choices, for example, sheet mulching just 500 square feet of lawn can save up to 6,000 gallons of water per year.
Learn how to liberate yourself from your water-thirsty lawn, use smart controllers, install drip irrigation, select drought-tolerant plants, reuse greywater and harvest the rain. Water saving experts will be on hand to offer one-on-one advice, there will be seminars and workshops running throughout the day, a kids’ activity area and water-wise giveaways.
