This free, two credit QWEL CEU course will includes in-class instruction reviewing irrigation tools & methods, Aspen's local ordinances, and a field based irrigation audit.
Instructors will review the basic concepts of distribution uniformity and irrigation auditing covered in the QWEL course and then describe the tools and strategies available to landscape and irrigation professionals to improve system efficiency and reduce landscape water use. Some strategies that will be discussed include: proper system design and installation, system programming, smart controllers, sensors and other monitoring equipment. Aspen Utilities staff will also be on-hand to discuss how this pertains to the City's Water Efficient Landscape Standards. A field audit will be conducted in a nearby park.
In this highly interactive course, students should come prepared with questions and to share their experiences and lessons learned from working to improve irrigation system efficiency.
