Irrigation Efficiency Brochure Released for Smart Irrigation Month

A brochure of water-efficiency tips for homeowners is available for download in recognition of Smart Irrigation Month, the Irrigation Association announced.

The brochure was created by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Irrigation Association to raise consumer awareness of efficient irrigation practices. The brochure is available online as a resource for homeowners as well as contractors, water utilities and others in the irrigation industry who work with property owners.

Users can download the file, add their company information, print and distribute it to customers. The brochure is being released in conjunction with Smart Irrigation Month, but it can be used all year to promote efficient irrigation practices.

"Because irrigation is a major user of water, the industry has an important role in making the most of our water resources," said Irrigation Association Executive Director Tom Kimmell. "Educating customers is a key element in irrigation efficiency. This brochure provides practical tips for creating healthy landscapes with less water while reminding users of the need to preserve water for future generations."

"We were pleased to work with the EPA on this project," Kimmell said.

The Irrigation Association declared July, a peak month for irrigation usage, Smart Irrigation Month to raise awareness of advances in irrigation efficiency. Smart Irrigation Month was recognized in the Congressional Record on June 8 and in a proclamation signed by Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns on July 10.
