It's almost time for those sprinkler systems to hibernate!
With temperatures dropping, very little watering is required, and over the next few weeks irrigation should no longer be necessary at all. It's time to start planning what to do with your sprinkler system for the winter.
Medford Water Commission offers Winterizing Your Sprinkler System, an overall guide to preparing your sprinkler system for the cold weather ahead (there is a printer-friendly PDF at the bottom of that page, or call 541-774-2436 to have a hard copy mailed to you).
If you see sprinklers running during the winter months, call us with the address and we will contact the property owner regarding the situation. Water frozen on lawns and sidewalks can lead to dangerous slip-and-fall accidents and wastes our precious water supplies. While taking the recommended winterizing steps may not provide complete protection from freezing, they are worthwhile precautions to lessen the potential for damage.
If you have any questions or would like more information, email us or call 541-774-2436.
