The city of Sacramento offers residents a free class Aug. 29 to learn how to use water wisely and comply with new watering rules.I guess it's a start, though offering just one class seems like a guarantee that at most, a few hundred might participate. Talk about a drop in the bucket. If they sent a few city employees to the class though, it might just have some long term benefits, considering their recent track record of water waste. Of course they could just let technology take care of things, and save even more water without all the labor...
The Saturday class runs from 10 a.m. to noon at the city's Water Conservation Office, 2260 Glen Ellen Circle. Participants will learn about new watering rules that took effect June 12, which restrict landscape irrigation to alternate days and certain hours on those days, among other things.
They'll also learn how to maintain a beautiful yard while reducing water consumption.

Baby Steps for Sacramento
It looks like Sacramento might be getting the tiniest bit serious about conserving water. As reported in the Sacramento Bee, the city will be offering residents classes on how to properly irrigate their lawns while still saving water.
