Thanks to abundant rain over the past several weeks, the U.S. Drought Monitor's latest update shows that the entire Rio Grande Valley is no longer in a drought.
Water conservation, however, is always important.
Some ways to conserve include:
Only water landscapes to maintain adequate soil moisture.
Only water lawn if rainfall has not fallen in 1-2 weeks.
Use a sprinkler which makes larger water droplets.
Turn sprinklers toward the lawn and not the pavement.
Avoid watering on windy days.
Turn soaker hoses holes downward, facing the grass.
