The Department of Water Resources (DWR) and the University of California collaborated to bring presentations and resources for managing landscapes during drought, designed for landscape irrigation managers.

Topics: 

  • Understanding precipitation rates (PR) to reduce runoff
  • Improving sprinkler distribution uniformity (DU) to reduce water use
  • Improving controller programs during mandatory water restrictions
  • Determining application rates and PR of drip/micro irrigation
  • Understanding soils to reduce runoff or deep percolation
  • Understanding water meters to improve irrigation during drought
