For the greater Sacramento area, the average rainfall is only about 17 inches per year. This low rainfall is characteristic of a semi-arid desert climate, with sunny, dry weather most of the year. Periodic droughts are a normal occurrence. Carmichael Water District in conjunction with the Regional Water Authority (RWA) believes gardens can be beautiful and water-wise, in keeping with our natural conditions. Water-wise gardening also helps conserve our precious water supplies.
