May 12, 2014 -  By

Irrigation AssociationLouisiana, Colorado and the city and county of Denver officially proclaimed July 2014 as Smart Irrigation Month.

Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock and Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal issued formal proclamations in April.

This is Colorado’s third consecutive year recognizing Smart Irrigation Month and Louisiana’s first year.

“We are proud to have our state become a part of this important conservation program,” said John Kavanaugh, president of the Louisiana Irrigation Association in Ruston, La. “We view this as an ideal opportunity to educate the general public about the importance and value of utilizing smart irrigation practices.”

The Irrigation Association (IA) first launched Smart Irrigation Month in July 2005. The initiative is designed to:

  • Educate homeowners, businesses, growers and other users about simple ways to save money and water;
  • Encourage industry firms and professionals to promote smart irrigation practices and technologies to customers;
  • Help water providers minimize peak water use and reduce demands on infrastructure in their communities; and
  • Reinforce the role efficient irrigation plays in providing real solutions to today’s water challenges.
