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.

TREES & DROUGHT

Trees and water are both precious resources. Help protect your landscape’s most valuable resources by following these simple steps:
1. Water the right amount – Water trees approximately 5 gallons per week. Water young trees twice per week and mature trees once per week in several places. Large, established trees may only require a deep watering every other week.
Tip: Drill small holes in the bottom of a 5-gallon bucket, fill the bucket with water and let it slowly soak in and water the tree. For large trees, repeat this step as needed. Deep watering promotes deep root growth and healthier trees.
2. Water in the right place – Water in the “drip zone,” the area directly beneath the foliage and shade of the tree.
Tip: Add a 3” layer of mulch to lower soil temperatures and reduce water evaporation.
3. Water at the right time – Water early in the morning before 6AM or at night after 8PM, as this is when trees replace the water they’ve lost during the day and less water is lost to evaporation.
