Eric Linder, representing the 60th Assembly District in California, recognized The Toro Co. for promoting Smart Irrigation Month.

For the first time since 2005, when the Irrigation Association (IA) launched Smart Irrigation Month, the governor issued a declaration recognizing July as Water Smart Month in the State of California. The intent, he said, was to help “increase water awareness throughout the state” and to “invite all Californians to practice more sustainable water consumption.” Toro partook in the effort to mark July as Smart Irrigation Month by reaching out to government agencies and elected officials at multiple levels.

“If nothing else, we hope that by promoting Smart Irrigation Month people will take a closer look at where they are using water and recognize that changing the habits of their water consumption will have a huge impact on our water supplies,” said Phil Burkart, vice president of the company’s Irrigation Business and acting past president of the IA. “From fixing a leaky faucet to upgrading water guzzling sprinkler nozzles or converting an area to drip irrigation, consumers can save money by making a few simple changes to use water more efficiently indoors and outdoors.”

In total, Toro has proclaimed July as Smart Irrigation Month in three states (California, New Jersey and Oklahoma), eight cities and two water districts.
