BE WATER-SAFE: ASSIGN A WATER WATCHER

Temperatures have heated up and pool season is upon us. Think safety first and assign a water watcher! If kids will be around water, assign a few capable adults who know how to swim and perform CPR in case of an emergency as water watchers.

  • Ask water watchers to put away distractions, such as electronic devices and books. If you are working from home or doing yard work, you can’t be a water watcher.
  • Make sure water watchers know the street address of the pool.
  • If at a pool, water watchers should scan the bottom of the pool before leaving and lock the pool gate.
  • Water watchers must actively watch those in their care, being sure to scan the area and keep count of everyone in the group, not just children.

NO-COST/LOW-COST ENERGY-SAVING TIPS

Here are some simple no-cost/low-cost tips to help you save some energy and money throughout the summer:

  1. Clean the lint trap before every dryer load.
  2. Wash dishes all at once instead of several times during the day.
  3. Replace the bulbs in your five most frequently used light fixtures with LEDs.
  4. Ceiling fans cool people, not rooms. Turn off the ceiling fan when no one is in the room.
  5. As temperatures rise, close curtains and blinds during the day to keep out the sunlight and heat.

ARIZONA'S WILDFIRE OUTLOOK

Arizona recently experienced one of the driest consecutive 12-month periods from April 2021 through March 2022 leading to much of the state being in extreme to exceptional drought conditions. This also resulted in the winter of 2022 being the 20th driest among 110-year-old records kept by SRP water managers with about 200,000 acre-feet of water flowing into the SRP reservoirs from the Salt and Verde watershed. For reference, 1 acre-foot of water is enough water for two to three households annually. And despite the dry conditions, the total reservoir system currently remains at 72% of capacity (as of April 15, 2022).

While some areas of the Verde watershed and Mogollon Rim received some much-needed snow this winter that brought a bit of relief to the extremely dry soil, the watershed is still suffering from the year-long drought conditions. As the typically dry spring season approaches and temperatures increase, new vegetation is likely to rapidly dry out, increasing the risk of wildfires. Predictions for Arizona’s 2022 wildfire season indicate a potentially active fire season both in lower-elevation grasslands and higher-elevation forested lands. Dry, windy and warm conditions leading into the monsoon are likely to pose a high risk for the possibility of significant fires in the high mountain forests that make up SRP’s watershed.

SRP continues to work with partners on forest restoration activities, such as thinning unhealthy, overgrown areas, in order to reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfires and protect the forest watershed that supplies water to the Valley.
