The Autumnal Equinox brings autumn to us on September 22, 2013 at 4:44 P.M. EDT. The District's irrigation season comes to an end on October 15th. Please winterize your yard and irrigation system before freezing temperatures catch us by surprise. Customers will be receiving a brochure in their October bills that provide guidance for winterizing your landscaping and irrigation system. A link is provided below that is a short video showing how to winterize your system.
BTW - The word equinox comes from the Latin words for "equal night." The fall and spring equinoxes are the only days of the year in which the sun crosses the celestial equator.
