Irrigation/Efficiency Workshop

Soquel Creek Water District and the City of Santa Cruz are partnering to provide a landscape contractor-oriented workshop that will cover challenges related to non-turf irrigation. We are talking about shrubs and trees here as emerging data is showing that over irrigation can be more problematic in shrub/tree zones than with turf. We need some landscape contractor presence; field experience with the pros and cons of using drip v spray, customer satisfaction, dealing with agencies etc. are pertinent themes for the discussion. John Ossa from Rain Bird will be on hand to provide a product demonstration. Representatives from Soquel Water and the City of Santa Cruz will provide overviews of rebate programs, water rates and landscape water use regulations. And so to round things out, can you present the landscape contractor perspective? Recent analysis shows that non-turf areas can be leading contributors to site water use inefficiency. Share your perspectives, gain knowledge, check out some new products and enjoy a free lunch. The City of Santa Cruz and Soquel Creek Water District will share rebate and water rate news, Rain Bird will be on hand for product demonstrations, as well as landscape and water industry professionals.
Free lunch will be provided! More information and sign up at:
