Forest Hill Irrigation Improvement Project
The Forest Hill project aims to significantly reduce water usage at the Forest Hill Muni Station by replacing the station area’s 40-year-old irrigation system. It will also reduce a portion of the sod area, replacing existing sod with a new variety that requires less water, and introducing drought tolerant and native plants.
In saving up to 442,494 gallons of water per year, this project supports water conservation and sustainability goals at the Forest Hill Station in line with the citywide water conservation goals.
