July is Smart Irrigation Month! (Jul 1, 2017)
Monte Vista Water District joins the irrigation industry in promoting July as Smart Irrigation Month.
July is traditionally the month of peak demand for watering lawns, gardens and landscapes in North America. The Irrigation Association named July as Smart Irrigation Month to increase public awareness about simple practices and innovative technologies that homeowners, businesses and property managers can use to:
- Save money on utility bills.
- Minimize or defer investments in infrastructure to store and carry water, typically paid for by property taxes or municipal bonds.
- Protect their community's water supply for generations to come.
Homeowners typically overwater lawns and landscapes by up to 30%. By selecting and planting carefully, watering wisely, and maintaining and upgrading automated irrigation systems, consumers can save money, save water and see better results.
