Summer 2020 Park Irrigation
Irrigation is active in all Denver parks this year, and we are irrigating to maintain tree, shrub and turf health within our irrigation budget. We are balancing our irrigation repair and maintenance program with reduced staffing, so irrigation technicians must also help with other park maintenance activities. Irrigation repairs are also hampered by shortages of irrigation parts as a result of supplier and manufacturer shutdowns due to COVID-19.
The summer season has been hotter and dryer than normal. The seven Denver Parks’ weather stations throughout the city show average rainfall of 3.5 inches for the irrigation season so far (April 15 to July 20), which is more than three inches below historical normal. Temperatures have been four degrees above normal for the month of July in the Denver area. During periods of high temperatures, extended wind events, and low precipitation, some turf may go dormant and not appear as lush green. You will see some brown spots in parks.
Our irrigation team is addressing needed repairs, programing schedule adjustments, and addressing vandalism issues as quickly as possible given these difficult conditions. Thank you for your patience.
