UP Residents Should Turn Off Sprinklers

If  you live in University Park, the city is requesting that you turn off your automatic sprinkler system immediately, and keep it off for most of the week.

The reason? With a shortage in the city’s two tanks, UP needs to conserve until the Park Cities Municipal Water District water main is back in service. Crews are working on the water main this week, but should be finished by Thursday.

You can sacrifice some green on your lawn for this week. Find more information here.

    I don’t think too many people are paying much attention to this request. Sprinklers on all over the place this morning. I bet those same people would be the first to complain if there was an emergency.
    Come on people, we’re in the middle of a drought. And speaking of, why are we not under water restrictions?

    I’m honoring HP’s same request, but you’d better believe that on Thursday my yard will have a nice long rain.

    The city forgot to listen to their calls. Fairfax park and Beverly at the tollway sprinklers have been on for at least a 20 minute cycle while I walked my dog tonight. I hope I have enough water to shower tomorrow.

    I noticed that the City was watering Gore Park early on Thursday, May 8. The City requests the residence to follow rules that the City does not follow themselves. Somewhat like the Federal government.

    And Coffee Park was getting a thorough soaking from the sprinklers on Friday morning. After all of the rain we had Thursday afternoon. Really! Come on City of UP! Get with the program.
