Microirrigation workshops and results in Hillsborough County

Lynn A. Barber

Abstract


The objective was to provide water conservation information to residents attending Microirrigation Workshops. Water issues are a top priority for Florida. With the population growth estimated to increase 25% by 2020 to 21.8 million, the need for 26.4% more water, an additional 9.1 billion gallons of fresh water required per day, is evidence that water conservation is critical. Education is the key whereby we can impact the 50% or greater water consumption issue of using potable water for residential landscape irrigation.
