Garden Centers Save Water
As California remains mired in severe drought conditions, water costs continue to rise and VMS seeks ways to conserve water wherever possible, the Village Garden Centers’ irrigation system now features automatic timer valves programmed to shut off water access when the facilities are closed.
By shutting off the water at night, we hope to stop any undiagnosed leaks/malfunctioning water timers that would otherwise run all night as well as eliminate any water line breaks that might happen when staff is not present. This practice also helps conserve when gardeners may forget to shut off water.
Water access will be turned off at Garden Centers 1 and 2 from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Sunday. Shutoff times will be adjusted accordingly with the seasons and daylight-saving time. If any gardeners have timers scheduled to run overnight during the shutoff time, please adjust your timers accordingly.
