Daytime Watering at Selected Ball Fields
June 14, 2013 - The City of Longmont waters parks and greenways predominantly at night for the convenience of park users and to reduce evaporation. In general, evaporation wastes water and ultimately reduces the effectiveness of irrigation. When temperatures rise and ball field use is high, parks such as Sandstone Ranch, Garden Acres and Clark Centennial may occasionally need additional watering during daytime hours to maintain playable conditions. Staff tries to minimize the need for daytime watering, but we are headed into the time of year where it may be more frequent.
