The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service-Travis Co will hold an Irrigation/Turf Maintenance Workshop on Oct 22, 2014. This conference is in response to our ongoing critical water issues. The general public can attend but the materials presented will be for turf and irrigation professionals such as those working with municipalities, including parks departments; golf courses; and large and commercial landscape maintenance firms as well as contractors; retail nurseries and other users of urban water resources.
The goal of the workshop is to share new technologies and best practices for water conservation and drought survival. Four Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) licensed irrigator credits are available to attendees.
