The overseeding process requires additional water in order for turf to be re-established. Repairing heavily used areas help also protects the grass from irreparable damage. JCSD is committed to only using the amount of water necessary to ensure the reseeding process is successful. Overseeding is the process of planting grass seeds directly onto existing turf. As part of the process, grass seeds require constant moisture in order for it to take root or germinate. To ensure the newly seeded turf areas are successful, JCSD will be conducting additional watering cycles of newly seeded areas during the day for the next few weeks.
While there are certain watering restrictions during California’s emergency drought status, the restrictions are for ornamental landscaping and do not apply to functional landscape that that uses non-potable water or water-efficient devices that are operated properly. These water-saving devices include:
Drip/micro irrigation systems
Stream rotor sprinklers
Operation weather-based irrigation controllers
