Care and Repair DIY Sprinkler System Workshop

Summertime is here and water use is at its peak. Sprinkler systems that leak, or are improperly installed, may cause higher water bills or waste thousands of gallons of water.

On Saturday, August 24 from 9 – 10:30 a.m. the City will be hosting a free “Care and Repair DIY Sprinkler System Workshop” at the Bob Jones Nature Center located at 355 Bob Jones Rd. Water conservation expert Dr. Dotty Woodson, who recently retired from her role as Water Resources Program Specialist at Texas A&M University AgriLife Extension Service, will lead the class. She will be teaching how to show your sprinkler system some “summer lovin’” by repairing and maintaining our sprinkler systems.
