The ACT Government is trialling a new program called IrrigationSmart. The trial will assist 200 ACT residents who have automated (programmable) drip irrigation systems to use their system in the most water-efficient way to maintain a healthy garden.
Participants in the trial receive:
- a visit from an irrigation specialist to assess the condition and effectiveness of their automated drip irrigation system;
- a written report containing the advice and recommendations made by the irrigation specialist;
- a FREE rain gauge; and
- are eligible to apply for a rebate of up to $100 for improvements to their irrigation system or garden’s water efficiency.
For more information about the trial and to register online go to www.thinkwater.act.gov.au or contact Karen Civil on 13 22 81.
