Hose Bib Backup

Suggestion: you might want to print this page and bring it along with you before coming up to the garden.

If the main water is turned off for long periods of time in the South Community Garden we will activate a backup watering hose using a frost free bib. It is located directly east of the South Community Garden down the hill and along the sidewalk next to a black garden bench. It will have a hose connected that will run up to the the South Community Garden.

It is our hope to have leave this hose pressurized for you. Simply go up to the garden and  turn on a hose valve at the end of the hose next to the nozzle. Be sure and turn it off when you leave.

If there is no water after turning on the valve, it indicates that the water may have gotten turned off at the bib.

To turn the bib valve back on, you must first locate the hose bib. It is East of the Community Garden along the lower path that is going between the Peace Garden to Discovery Pond. It is blue on a silver stand pipe and looks like a hand water pump on a water pipe. It stands about 4′ tall. Once you find the bib do the following:

By pulling the ring down you divert the water from splashing
on the ground to going into the attached hose.

When you are done. Leave the hose line activated.
ALWAYS turn off the valve on the hose itself.
