~ With the rainy season coming up, the city would like you to switch off sprinklers while it is raining and for 48 hours after the rain ends to conserve water. It also recommends installing weather-based irrigation controllers that automatically shut off sprinklers when it rains, using barrels to capture rainwater for later landscaping watering use, and installing drought-tolerant landscape.

~ From Oct. 30 through Nov. 3, there will be digging and pipe laying on the 700 block of W. Lemon and S. Sunset Pl., and digging potholes to locate underground utilities on the 300 block of W. Chestnut. For questions contact Chris Castruita at Monrovia Public Works at 256-8224.
