Wet Start to Year Eases Some Drought Concerns

Wet Start to Year Eases Some Drought Concerns

South Florida has experienced an abnormally wet start to the year.

The South Florida Water Management District, which manages water resources in sixteen counties across the Southern half of the state, reported earlier this month, in a press release, that all areas under its supervision had recorded rainfall totals above average in the “dry season” that begins each year. While restrictions for landscape irrigation remain in place – residents in most areas may water their lawns two days per week – lawns should withstand the heat of the summer months as we enter the “rainy season.” Typically, South Florida experiences frequent, and sometimes heavy, rainfall between June and October. Top irrigation businesses in the area, including leading irrigation west palm beach companies, can help area residents in numerous ways, such as repairing broken sprinkler heads, moving and adjusting heads to improve sprinkler coverage, installing water-saving devices like rainswitches and more.

Customers in the region can ensure that their lawns remain healthy and green, regardless of precipitation levels, by keeping their sprinkler systems well maintained. Sprinkler companies across the area can perform periodic wet checks on people’s irrigation systems to fix broken pipes, malfunctioning valves, broken heads, clogged nozzles and other common issues. Call licensed and insured companies to repair issues with sprinklers lake worth, as well as delray beach sprinklers, sprinklers boca raton, west palm beach sprinklers and more.

Homeowners and communities across South Florida can upgrade and improve their sprinkler systems in a number of ways to make their systems more efficient and eco-friendly.
