Water Conservation
On April 7, 2017, Governor Jerry Brown issued an executive order lifting the drought emergency for most of the state, while asking Californians to continue using water responsibly and make conservation a way of life. On Friday (June 23, 2017), the Nipomo Mesa Management Area Technical Group released an update that the Nipomo area remains in a severe water shortage condition, as indicated by groundwater data analyzed at key wells in the region. Go to the Golden State Water website for more information. http://www.gswater.com/santa-maria/
Due to local conditions as stated above, the Cypress Ridge water system continues to have mandatory water-use restrictions to achieve a 36% reduction, compared to 2013. Outdoor irrigation is limited to two days per week and must occur before 8 am or after 7 pm, and should not exceed 10 minutes per station.
Watering Days (Even Address) Mon, Thu
Watering Days (Odd Address) Tues, Fri

Important Association Notices
Did you know that Cypress Ridge is a Cliff & Barn Swallow nesting site? The Swallows return here each year.  They feed on mosquitoes and other bugs and help us have a bug free spring and summer. 

The Federal Migratory Bird Protection Act of 1918 protects Swallows.

  • It is illegal to destroy a completed nest between Feb.15 - Sept.1
  • Old nests vacated by the birds may be removed after Sept. 1st.

U.C. Davis has information on preventing swallow colonies at www.ipm.ucdavis.edu/PMG/PESTNOTES

  • Scroll down to "Birds, mammals, and reptiles: Verterate pests".  
  • Click on "Cliff Swallows".

 How do you spot a Swallow’s nest?  Look for clumps of mud near the eaves of the house.  Nests under construction may be removed using high power water to knock down the mud – make sure you get all the mud off the house.  An incomplete nest looks like a quarter or half cup & may have eggs in it.  You may need a ladder to check out the nest.  If it does not have eggs in it, then you can knock it down.  The Swallows will try to rebuild the nests you knock down so, be diligent about removing the mud before it builds up, but always check to make sure there are no eggs in the nest.
