Water Authority’s Free Irrigation Checkup Program Registration Ends May 25

 
Short Title
Irrigation Checkup Program Ending
Program helps commercial property owners and managers improve water use efficiency

May 25 is the deadline for owners and managers of multifamily, commercial, industrial or public properties to sign up for a free checkup of their irrigation systems before the program ends on June 1.  Residential property owners of one irrigated acre or more are also eligible. The check-ups can be scheduled by visiting www.irrigationcheckup.org or by calling                      (866) 883-1332.

City of San Diego property owners or managers should call (619) 570-1999, and those within the Helix Water District service area should call (619) 466-0585 to schedule a checkup.

Checkups are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. After completing an onsite survey with a landscape professional, participants receive a report detailing observations and site-specific recommendations to improve water efficiency. Water savings of up to 20 percent often are possible after implementing the recommendations. 

Information on irrigation checkups for single-family homes with less than one irrigated acre is available at www.20gallonchallenge.com/programs_residential.html.

Both the commercial and single-family programs are administered on behalf of the Water Authority by Mission Resource Conservation District, an independent agency that promotes responsible use of land, water and other natural resources.
