The Vallejo City Unified School District had been working for years to reduce its water usage even before last month’s drought announcement, a district official said Friday.
“Our behaviors that we’ve been changing over the years are going to be an advantage for us. At this point, we’re ahead of the curve,” said Mel Jordan, the district’s assistant superintendent for administrative services.
For example, Corbus Field near Vallejo High School was remodeled in 2003 to include synthetic turf, eliminating the need to water the grass.
