From the Delta County Independent:
Colorado State Extension horticultural agent Curtis Swift will conduct an irrigation audit workshop on Thursday, May 20, from 1:30-3:30 p.m. at Bill Heddles Recreation Center. You will learn how to determine the water pressure at critical locations in your system, irrigation application rate and distribution uniformity for your sprinkler system. Then you will learn how to schedule your system for best frequency, rate and duration for your intended crop (grass, vegetable and flower gardens, trees and shrubs). Locating and identifying irrigation system problems will also be covered. And an actual audit of one of the rec center systems will be conducted so you will have some practical experience to help you learn.
Please pre-register at Delta’s CSU Extension center at 874-2195. Cost is $5 per person. Class is limited to 35 participants.
