Not sure which sections of your yard could benefit from "going micro"? Tampa Water Department customers with functional in-ground irrigation systems using potable (drinking) water may qualify for a free Sensible Sprinkling Irrigation Efficiency Evaluation. Following an on-site inspection by an experienced irrigation evaluator, Sensible Sprinkling participants receive a detailed written report that includes: a seasonal sprinkling schedule for each zone and site specific recommendations on improving water efficiency and reducing water use. Limited funding may be available to provide rebates to customers who implement recommendations provided in the evaluation report, such as retrofitting the system with drip or micro-irrigation.
The FYN Program is designed to educate homeowners and other community members about the benefits of Florida-friendly landscaping. The Water-Wise Program is sponsored by a grant from the Hillsborough County Water Resource Services and workshops are sponsored by Hillsborough County Water Resource Services and the Tampa Water Department.
