The County of San Luis Obispo says it is continuing to take steps to reduce water use on public property.
The County says the Parks and Recreation Department has met the 25 percent mandated reduction. That number is higher at some facilities, like Nipomo Regional Park, where officials say water use there has been reduced by 40 percent from 2013 due to a new multi-cycle pump and central control irrigation system.
"We've installed a digital central control system there that allows us to easily regulate all of the irrigation, with the flexibility of being able to adjust irrigation levels based on climate conditions as well as monitor and control the system directly from our mobile devices," said SLO County Parks Superintendent Larry Iaquinto in a press release.
Officials say the changes have not hurt the sports fields there.
