Is Your Irrigation System Wasting Water?

The "Slow the Flow" program is helping area businesses review their current irrigation practices and is providing simple, highly effective fixes.
Partners for a Clean Environment (PACE) and the Center for Resource Conservation (CRC) can send a skilled water technician to your property – at no cost to you. The technician can provide a detailed analysis of your system, as well as suggestions for improving its efficiency and effectiveness.
In 2016, this service saved businesses money and conserved water:
  • Each property saved an average of 5,000 gallons of water per outdoor watering season.
  • Collectively, that’s 12.5 million gallons saved in 2016 – enough to fill about 19 Olympic-sized swimming pools!


Schedule Your Free Irrigation Assessment Today

This service is limited and is first come, first served, so contact the Center for ReSource Conservation today at 303-999-3824 or visit the website to sign up.
