For Immediate Release
Pleasant Hill, CA (November 28, 2014): Hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving! As gardeners, we're especially grateful for the upcoming forecast. Rain, rain and more rain, at least for the next several days. Not enough to end the drought though, so please keep on conserving as much water as you can. For water conservation tips, check out our Drought Tips page, as well as a recent CCMG Blog entry on Smart Controllers.
