I stumbled upon this scene just before 9:30 p.m., Nov. 5, on the east side of Lone Hill Avenue north of Auto Centre Drive.
Lots of water from the irrigation flowed over the sidewalks and into the street, while at least one sprinkler head was jettisoning water mostly onto the pavement.
The recent rains have done little to help the worsening drought situation.
With the driest rainy season in Southern California, combined with a decrease in the amount of imported water and reduced water well production, Glendora officials are asking customers to reduce water consumption to 10 percent below water use levels compared to last year.
Residents and business owners can also request a free water efficiency audit from the city’s Water Division to receive recommendations on water use reduction by calling (626) 852-4838.
Concerned citizens can report excess water runoff or by calling (626) 852-4838 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Service and water main leaks can be reported by calling (626) 914-8246. After hours leaks can be directed to the Glendora Police Department at (626) 914-8250.
