Don Pedro community's landscaping to go thirsty

The garden at the Lake Don Pedro Owners Association's Hacienda facility is fed by an on-site well, association Office Manager Pam Hatler said.

(LDPOA | CONTRIBUTED)Tuesday, March 10, 2015 - 3 p.m. - With their water supply slowing to a dribble, Lake Don Pedro residents are now facing severe water-use restrictions that prohibit outdoor irrigation.

The Lake Don Pedro Community Services District voted to declare a Stage III Drought Emergency on Monday. More than 3,000 residents will now be forced to comply with a 50-percent water-use restriction.

The district's water woes might be relieved if two new wells are drilled, District 2 Supervisor Merlin Jones said at today's county board of supervisors meeting.

Landscapers at the Lake Don Pedro Owners Association will likely cut back on irrigation, even though its facility's on-site well is not covered by the restriction, spokesperson Pam Hatler said.
