This is the driest year to date in California, based on records going back 128 years. With a hot summer ahead, Irvine Ranch Water District (IRWD) urges you to do your part on using less water; find tips and resources at

Irvine residents are encouraged to save water and money by staying within their monthly water budget, but IRWD customers are not subject to restrictions on watering their yards. Check out IRWD's suggested irrigation schedule to make sure you're not wasting water.
