Please still water the plants

Please continue to water the gardens! Our rationale is that we are not washing our cars or filling a swimming pool or using an automated sprinkler system,  but are hand watering plants paid for by donations of Concord residents.

Below is the notice that came out July 6th for those that did not see it:
Concord's water system is currently experiencing peak demand for water because of the heat wave. Please refrain from all outdoor water use immediately. Some customers may experience lower water pressure than normal, or temporary water quality disturbances because of the extraordinary demand for water. We are doing everything possible to provide the water that is needed for essential uses by all our customers, including firefighting and indoor water use. For additional updates, please monitor this website.
