Water You Doing
Recommended Spring Watering Schedule
MVWD would like to remind customers to change their watering schedule for each season. Plants and lawns typically need less water in the spring and fall months than they do during the summer, and they require much more water during the hottest month of the year than during the rest of the warm months.
Chino Basin Water Conservation District will be giving out FREE Mulch and Compost Giveaways from 8:30-11:30 AM on the First and Third Saturday of each month.
Mulch is a mix of local tree trimmings. Mulch helps conserve water by reducing evaporation, allowing water to be held in the soil for longer. It also helps build soil structure, inhibits weed growth, and much more.
