With all the wildfires, a trend of leaving sprinklers on or installing rooftop sprinklers to help fight a wildfire or to protect homes has gained momentum.
Many residents are drawing down water supply sources at an alarming rate due to leaving irrigation systems, hoses, and sprinklers on roofs actively running.
But is it causing more harm than good?
Fire personnel conveys that this will not help protect your home from a wildfire and is detrimental to firefighting efforts that rely on adequate water flows.
A press release was issued by North Tahoe Fire Protection District in response to the Caldor Fire but is very relevant for our community regarding preserving water resources during wildfires, especially during the current drought crisis Sonoma County is in.
Please click on the link below to read the entire press release:
With two consecutive dry years resulting in historically low rainfall and reservoir levels in the Russian River watershed, Governor Gavin Newson declared a regional drought emergency on April 21 for Sonoma and Mendocino counties. The governor’s proclamation addresses acute drought impacts in the Russian River watershed, directs the State Water Board to consider modifying requirements for reservoir releases or diversion limitations to ensure adequate supplies for critical purposes, and enables flexibilities in regulatory requirements and procurement processes to mitigate drought impacts.
