For the past several years, we have partnered with the Metropolitan Council on the Twin Cities Lawn Irrigation Efficiency Study. Recently, the Metropolitan Council earned a national award for water conservation collaborations from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency; the award highlighted our collaborative and ongoing efforts with the Metropolitan Council on lawn water conservation. Congratulations to the Metropolitan Council for this great recognition!
Examples of some of the work sponsored by the Metropolitan Council that our team has done include:
- Outreach by Lawn Water Conservation Educator Shane Evans with our Irrigation Efficiency Educational Trailer
- An exhibit at the Minnesota State Fair on smart irrigation and water lawn efficiency
- Drought effects on turfgrass seed mixture research conducted by Florence Sessoms
- A Watering Wisdom webinar series that showcases how to grow a healthy lawn with less water
