Irrigation course gets EPA WaterSense accreditation

Irrigation course gets EPA WaterSense accreditation The Texas AgriLife Extension Service and the Irrigation Technology Center-School of Irrigation has been conducting the Landscape Irrigation Auditing and Management Short Course since 1994. But starting in 2011, attendees will get twice the recognition for the course, said Charles Swanson, AgriLife Extension landscape irrigation specialist and one of the course instructors.

This year’s course attendees can also earn Environmental Protection Agency WaterSense certification for irrigation system auditing in addition to the 16 hours of continuing education units and certification as a Texas Water Auditor.

“The AgriLife Extension Service program becomes one of only nine organizations in the country, as well as the only one based in Texas, to offer the EPA WaterSense label to irrigation professionals,” Swanson said.
