The Citrus County Board of County Commissioners presented a Proclamation at their regular meeting on July 25, 2017 proclaiming July 2017 as Smart Irrigation Month in Citrus County.
Water is a finite resource that is vital to human life and well maintained green spaces are important to the health and well-being of communities and individuals. Appropriate irrigation technology, combined with best practices, can significantly reduce water usage and runoff while creating healthy lawns, landscaping, and sports turf. The adoption of smart irrigation practices further improves water use efficiency. The Citrus County Department of Water Resources encourages citizens to install Water Sense labeled smart irrigation controllers for substantial water savings through its rebate program.
The Board of County Commissioners proclaims July 2017 as “Smart Irrigation Month” and calls the observance to the attention of all citizens.
