Construction is underway on Ramon Road between Calle Santa Cruz and El Cielo. Crews are replacing an old pipeline that was experiencing severe and frequent leaks. This project will improve water reliability and reduce water loss in that area.
Construction will reduce lanes both eastbound and westbound during the day. In the evenings and on weekends Ramon Road will remain open (though you'll probably notice that there is only temporary paving in place). During weekdays, please use alternate routes if possible. Keep in mind, Palm Springs High School starts on August 8 this year.
Palm Springs and Cathedral City saw heavy rainfall. Please remember to make sure that your irrigation is off during and 48 hours after more than a quarter of an inch of rain. This is a statewide requirement.
Desert Water Agency has rebates available for weather-based irrigation controllers that will shut off in the rain. Please visit our page on Weather-based irrigation controllers (smart controllers) for more information.
Desert Water Agency is rolling out updated rebates to help you save money and water! Workshops with all the details are scheduled on:
July 10 @ 2 p.m. – Landscapers
July 11 @ 9 a.m. – HOA/commercial
July 12 @ 9 a.m. – Homeowners
