April Greener Davis Workshops
In celebration of the 47th anniversary of the first Earth Day, the City is offering a series of environmental classes that promise to be nothing short of literary masterpieces (or at least educational and entertaining). All classes will be held at 6:30 p.m. at the Veteran's Memorial Center in the Game Room, and will run 1 to 1½ hours in length.
Davis-Woodland Schools and Parks Water Conservation Projects Plan
The City of Davis, in coordination with the City of Woodland, Davis Joint Unified School District and Woodland Joint Unified School District was granted funding from the Water Resources Association of Yolo County to identify water conservation opportunities in Davis and Woodland schools and public use areas. Through a competitive Request for Proposal process, landscape architectural consultants Melton Design Group (MDG) were chosen by a representative group from the four agencies and hired by the City of Davis to evaluate potential sites for water conservation and identify opportunities for improvements and funding.
The final project plan includes a project description, water conservation improvements, estimated cost of construction and grant funding opportunities for each priority project. The final plan will allow the participating agencies to more easily apply for grants for priority water-conservation projects by having a design, description, and cost estimate in place for each project. The projects can also be broken down into smaller, more manageable areas and the cost estimates adjusted by the size of the project and the amenities included. The grant funding list will aid the agencies in prioritizing which grants are the best match for each individual project.
Public Facilities & Parks
Davis maintains 485 acres of landscaping across 36 parks and 55 miles of greenbelts and streetscapes. To do our part to save water, the City’s goal is to reduce water use in these areas by 30 percent. Staff is working diligently to implement changes to achieve this goal.
Water Conservation Workshops
The City offers water conservation workshops with topics including rain water retention, lawn conversion, irrigation systems, grey water systems, water-wise landscaping, and more. Past workshop presentations and videos can be found on the water conservation workshops page.
Water Conserving Homes Yard Signs
The City has “Save Davis Water” front yard signs which are available to water saving households who would like to encourage others to conserve. These signs are free. The City can drop them off at your home or you can pick up a sign at the Public Works Department front counter at City Hall, 23 Russell Blvd. E-mail WaterSmart@CityofDavis.org to have a sign delivered to your home.
