The Irrigation Association and CPS Distributors, Inc., Westminster, Colo., are proud to announce that Governor John Hickenlooper has proclaimed July 2013 as Smart Irrigation Month for the State of Colorado. This is the second consecutive year that Colorado has recognized Smart Irrigation Month, an Irrigation Association initiative that began in 2005.

Focusing on July, a time of peak water demand in North America, Smart Irrigation Month is dedicated to increasing public awareness of the value of water-use efficiency, water-saving products, practices and services. It is designed to:

  • Educate homeowners, businesses, growers and other users about simple ways to save money and water. 
  • Encourage industry firms and professionals to promote smart irrigation practices and technologies to customers. 
  • Help water providers minimize peak water use and reduce demands on infrastructure in their communities. 
  • Reinforce the role efficient irrigation plays in providing real solutions to today’s water challenges.

All industry professionals and businesses are encouraged to participate in Smart Irrigation Month. Campaign participants are also invited to submit their marketing materials by Aug. 30, 2013, to the Smart Marketing Contest which honors the companies who best incorporate Smart Irrigation Month messaging, branding and quality.
