The City of College Station’s irrigation checkup program and Sprinkler Spruce-Up workshops earned awards at the recent Texas Water 2018
conference in San Antonio.
The Water Conservation and Reuse
awards are given by the Conservation & Reuse Division of the Texas Section
of the American Water Works Association to recognize outstanding achievement in the water efficiency and water reuse.
The city partners with Texas A&M AgriLife Research to present the Sprinkler Spruce-Up
workshops, where a licensed irrigator demonstrates how to make simple repairs to irrigation systems to save water. Participants also learn about the Brazos Valley WaterSmart
network and local water resources.
College Station Water Services also provides free landscape irrigation checkups
to its customers that include a written report and tailored recommendations to reduce water bills.
“Water can be wasted in the landscape due to leaks, misaligned spray heads, excess water pressure, excessive run times, and other issues,” College Station Water Resource Coordinator Jennifer Nations said. “Through the irrigation checkup program and workshops, customers improve their knowledge of water efficiency and to date have saved 12 million gallons of water. We are pleased to receive this recognition.”
