ON THE HOME FRONT
In western Pennsylvania, we're fortunate to have regular rainfall during an average year, even though extended wet or dry periods can occur during the summer months. Pittsburgh is doubly fortunate to receive ample rainfall, plus enjoy a steady supply of water from the three rivers. While on the other hand, Philadelphia and the southeastern part of Pennsylvania have suffered some severe summer droughts over the past couple decades.
Clean water is a valuable commodity and prices around the country are reflecting that fact more each year. To be good stewards of this resource, we must not waste, pollute or neglect our future water supplies.
With lawn irrigation systems, the main concern should be not wasting water. By adjusting how often one waters, and at what time of day, the overall situation can be at its best.
