Water Smart Pipeline has new message option

RANCHO SAN DIEGO, CA—The Water Conservation Garden’s Water Smart Pipeline is now accessible to the public 24 hours a day. Callers may record their questions day or night on the “Pipeline’s” voicemail, and will get a return phone call during Pipeline hours from local gardening expert, Nan Sterman, author of the California Gardener’s Guide, Volume 2, and host of the television gardening program, “A Growing Passion”.


Popular since its debut, the horticultural help is designed to answer people’s questions about how to garden in the current water shortage fraught with supply restrictions and rate increases.


Callers can reach the Pipeline at 866-962-7021, and if their call is not answered immediately, they will get a return phone call during Pipeline business hours on:

Tuesdays: 8:30 am to12:00 pm
Thursdays: 1:00pm to 4:30pm


Initial funding for the Water Smart Pipeline comes from the Stanley Smith Horticultural Trust. Information about the Water Conservation Garden and all of its water smart landscaping programs can be found at www.thegarden.org.
