Free Workshop on October 13 Highlights Importance of Efficient Irrigation

Olivenhain Municipal Water District, in partnership with Hunter Industries, invites the public to attend a free workshop featuring practical tips to save water through an efficient irrigation system. This workshop is designed for individuals interested in the latest irrigation advances in reducing outdoor water use. The workshop will be held on October 13, from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Elfin Forest Interpretive Center Honoring Susan J. Varty, located at 8833 Harmony Grove Road in Escondido.

In addition to engaging with irrigation experts from Hunter Industries, participants will be provided information on the latest available water-saving rebate products to explore, along with a complimentary succulent plant for the first 50 participants.

“Learning more about how to use innovative new technologies and approaches to achieve water use efficiency is top-of-mind as drought conditions remain in effect,“ said OMWD Board Secretary Bob Topolovac. “With simple changes in how we irrigate, our customers can reduce water usage and help ensure the long-term sustainability of water supplies.”

Many homeowners and businesses are choosing to incorporate water-efficient irrigation systems in their outdoor landscapes to save water and money in this extended drought. For more information and to register for this event, visit
