Learn how to keep your irrigation system in top shape during a series of seminars from the Fort Worth Water Department.

Using less water is not only good for the environment, it’s also great for saving some extra dollars.

The Fort Worth Water Department, in partnership with the Texas AgriLife Extension Service, is hosting a series of monthly free seminars highlighting how to save water in your landscape.

Through these seminars, you will learn:

  • How to keep landscapes healthy even with water restrictions.
  • How to plan and grow a water-saving garden/landscape.
  • How to perform irrigation checkups and make minor repairs and adjustments to your system.
  • Why drip irrigation is the most efficient irrigation method.

Seminars begin at 6 p.m. March 1 and run through November. All seminars are at the Botanical Research Institute of Texas, 1700 University Drive.
