City parks conserving water

In the first unusual steps I’ve seen the city take this drought year, Stockton officials announced today that several water play areas in local parks will not open this year.

“The City of Stockton has reduced park water usage by 20 percent and continues to make every effort to minimize water waste,” a news release says.

Water features at Faklis, Iloilo, Smith and Gleason parks will not operate this season. The dragon water feature at Pixie Woods will be on when the park is open.

Finally, the fountains at Weber Point Event Center is scheduled to operate from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. starting June 11, but it may not operate during all events.

The city’s parks have tens of thousands of sprinklers. To report irrigation problems, call (209) 937-8341.
