Sponsored by: Sacramento Stormwater Quality Workshop


Classroom and hands-on practice in the field

Thousands of existing irrigation systems in California that waste water and/or water plants incorrectly need your help. You don’t have to be an irrigation expert to make observations and recommendations for repairs and upgrades. Join us in this two-part classroom/field workshop, and come away with the skills and resources to either add irrigation assessment to your services, or strengthen your existing practice.


Schedule Overview:

9:00 am – 11:00 am Classroom

We’ll step through the process of irrigation assessments, and provide you with data collection and report templates. You’ll also get plugged into resources – both written and human, that can assist you in this venture.

11:00 am – 11:45 pm Lunch on your own

11:45 am- 1:45 pm “Hands On” Experience

For the second part of this workshop, we’ll head out into the field, and perform an irrigation assessment. We’ll immediately put into practice what we learned in the classroom.
