The CRWP Thanks You! 

For the third year the CRWP launched our annual summer watering campaign “Fish On the Run, Irrigation Done” asking our customers to participate and help the Clackamas River by reducing or shutting-off outdoor watering by the beginning of September for the fall fish migration.

This year we had the most customer interaction with the campaign than we have ever had.  Ninety-four customers submitted online pledge forms and/or requested yard signs totaling 144 yard signs going out into our communities.

Summer is now over, our days are shorter, the nights are longer, and it is much cooler.  If you have not already done so, it is time to shut off and winterize your outdoor irrigation systems.  Plants are going into their dormant stage which means they do not need any supplemental water. For those of you who let your lawns go dormant during the summer and did not water, you are seeing your lawns turn green again. 

The CRWP would like to thank all of you who participated in this very important campaign and doing your part to keep water in the Clackamas River for the fall fish migration.

THANK YOU!!!!!!!

If you didn’t have an opportunity to participate in our annual summer watering campaign this year, look for it again next summer.
