Day 4

Christmas and New Year’s Day is almost here and we have one more new quiz for today. This is the fourth quiz in the 12 Days of Quizzes series.

On the Fourth Day of Christmas…

On the Fourth Day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…four colly birds

I don’t know about you, but I had to look up what a colly bird actually is. It turns out that colly birds are another name for blackbirds.

We all have probably watched with wonder as birds have frolicked in a puddle and transformed it into an impromptu bird bath.

But, if that puddle was caused by overspray from sprinklers irrigating a lawn, the irrigation system just violated one of the provisions of the California Model Water Efficient Landscape Ordinance.

Model Water Efficient Landscape Ordinance

California passed and implemented a model water conservation ordinance to establish a minimum standard for landscape water conservation. The model ordinance must be adopted by local permitting authorities. Therefore, any new landscape or renovation that meets the requirements established in the ordinance must satisfy the Model Ordinance requirements.

Landscape architect candidates who have recently passed the California Supplemental Exam for landscape architects report that there are several questions about water conservation, irrigation, and the model ordinance.

The following quiz questions will test your knowledge of California’s Model Water Efficient Landscape Ordinance. Let’s dig in!
