Record Low Rainfall in May 2023

Last May, the New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania regions experienced record low rainfall.

In Philadelphia, the city set a new record for May with a mere 0.24 inches of rainfall. Similarly, Trenton saw the 3rd lowest precipitation on record, with only 0.61 inches of rain. Newark also experienced its 4th driest May, receiving just 0.89 inches of rainfall. These numbers are significantly below the average rainfall of 3 to 4 inches seen during this time of year.

The lack of rainfall during May has important implications for Access Property Management and our communities. With less moisture in the ground, it becomes crucial to closely monitor and manage our water resources. We understand the importance of conserving water to ensure the well-being of our landscapes and the sustainability of our communities.

Due to the dryness, homeowners are being asked to conserve water. Adjusting one’s lifestyle to using less water can be challenging, but here are some suggestions that should help:

  • Take shorter showers instead of baths.
  • Run dishwashers only when they are full.
  • Repair leaking toilets and faucets. Leaking toilets can waste up to 200 gallons of water per day, while leaking faucets can waste around 5 gallons per day.
  • Turn off the sink when brushing your teeth or shaving.
  • Defrost frozen food in the refrigerator instead of running water over it.
  • Wash only full loads of laundry.
  • Avoid washing vehicles or watering lawns. If necessary to water your lawn, try to avoid doing so during the hottest or windiest parts of the day.
