Our Water Commissioner, John Tynan, has sent along the following freebie:
Free Residential Irrigation Checks
Yes, free with no strings attached. The Greenville Water System (GWS) has partnered with local Soil & Water Conservation Districts, the Natural Resource Conservation Service and other water districts to bring you an opportunity to save water and save you money. The program is called “Every Drop Counts South Carolina” and it is designed to reduce outdoor water waste by providing a free irrigation water check so that you can learn how to better save water and reduce your water bill. The objective is to help you “use water wisely”.
GWS has identified dedicated irrigation tap customers for this opportunity. The water check involves an inspection of your in-ground irrigation system by the Conservation District staff at a time scheduled for your convenience. To get started, you will need to contact the Conservation District office at 1-864-878-4801 or by email at email@example.com to schedule the check at absolutely no cost to you! It is required that you be present during the check.

An Irrigation Check analyzes the efficiency of your automated in-ground sprinkler system. Trained staff will perform the Check and provide you with a customized set of recommendations. The tests that will be performed include soil type, grass root depth, sprinkler distribution uniformity and water pressure
