DOTHAN -- On the bright side, gardens and lawns have not needed tended to in this wet weather.

But for sprinkler and water irrigation installers, it has really dampened business.

It's also hurt those in irrigation part supply. D&J Nursery Owner Stan West said business has definitely been slower in that department.

"We've seen a reduction in sales, somewhere in the neighborhood of 30 percent," West said.

Dothan Utilities officials said that the city has used about 3 million gallons of water less than they did at this time last year.
