Drought takes its toll on Orland cemeteries

Apr 17, 2015 8:16 PM

As the historic drought continues, many public agencies in California are going to find it hard to keep the grass green, including cemeteries. Officials from the Orland Cemetery District say they're already cutting back. The district covers the Masonic, Catholic, Graves, and Odd Fellows Cemeteries in Orland. Since the governor mandated that people use 25% less water the district superintendent says they need to do their part.

"Put in extra proactive effort by reducing the time we water and the amount of days we water." says District Superintendent Art Leonard. "If necessary if I start to see my wells depleting I might have to cut back and not water some of my lawns and that is going to be my last resort."
