Learn about the Legend of the Ground Day Sprinkler. What is the significance of February 2nd you ask?
Every year on this day, the city of Long Beach gathers to await the arrival of the Groundhog Day Sprinkler. This Long Beach legend emerges from the ground and looks to spot its shadow. If the shadow appears, the citizens of Long Beach are then told to not water their grass from at least 6 more weeks.
If this sprinkler did not exist, Long Beach would waste tons of water! The Groundhog Day Sprinkler is an important piece of Long Beach history and water conservation. For more information water conservation, visit lbwater.org
