 More from the Corps ...

 



With funding from  the Governor's 2014 emergency drought relief legislation, the CCC established five crews trained to assist with water conservation work.  The crews are based in Napa, Norwalk, San Bernardino, Santa Maria and Stockton and travel throughout the state to do turf removal and install irrigation systems.  They also install low-flowplumbing fixtures.

This month, the CCC has been working in Rialto and has removed 28,000 square feet of turf along a median strip. Once the grass is removed, a drip irrigation system will be installed to water the existing trees. The project is estimated to save some one million gallons of water each year.
