Drought conditions in Ashland have lead to the city and parks department to forgo planting of annual flower beds in Lithia Park.
Parks and Recreation Superintendent, Bruce Dickens says, "We just want to set a good example for the community."
The department is partnering with conservation team within the city to place signs through areas of the park informing the public.
Dicken's says, while they typically check for leaks or bad sprinklers, the shut off allows the department to check individual heads to make sure water isn't being wasted.
