This fall has been extremely warm and dry. In typical years, minimal outside watering is necessary during the fall and winter due to increased precipitation. However, Centennial Water provides a small outdoor water budget to supplement precipitation when conditions are dry.
In addition to an indoor water budget, residential customers receive 1,000 gallons of water per billing cycle for outdoor use. This wintertime water budget is intended to keep trees, shrubs and other vegetation (non-grass) healthy during dry spells.
Centennial Water recommends customers hand water if necessary during warm, dry periods. This ensures you know exactly where water is going and approximately how much you have applied. This will help you stay within your allotted water budget.
