Multiple Methods of Irrigation Installation

Irrigation installation job sites are becoming more and more complex. Underground rights-of-way are congested with underground utilities, and yards are increasingly populated with potential landscape, hardscape or environmental hazards. One installation method that contractors are turning to is vacuum excavation. As a low impact and flexible option, vacuum excavators are becoming increasingly popular in urban job sites. When pairing vacuum excavation with traditional installation methods like trenching and excavating, contractors can take on more jobs and increase profitability. Vacuum excavation and traditional installation methods complement each other and should be mutually beneficial. Vacuum excavators are not there to replace trenchers and excavators but to supplement where traditional methods can’t go.

Pressure Regulation & Check Valves for Landscape Irrigation

This webinar discusses how pressure regulation and check valves help conserve water resources. Pressure regulation can be achieved in several different ways: at the point of connection, at the valve or at the sprinkler head. Each method has its advantages and disadvantages. Check valves help prevent low-head drainage that empties lateral pipes unnecessarily and likewise can conserve water used in the landscape.

The Hidden Issues of Using Nonpotable Water Sources

Nonpotable water not only includes reclaimed or treated water but also stormwater, water from lakes and ponds, and even some wells because it is not suitable for drinking. In many parts of the country, state regulations require that the source for irrigation water be the lowest quality available to the site because of the increasing demands on the potable water supply. The use of these nonpotable sources comes with an increased number of complications that can be detrimental to the performance of the irrigation system if not identified. This webinar will help landscape and irrigation contractors recognize and deal with these potential obstacles.

TPNRD Water Data Program

The Twin Platte Natural Resources District manages groundwater resources in an area around North Platte, Nebraska. A collaborative effort that was irrigator initiated is changing the landscape of how to gather water data for use in more accurate groundwater assessment and management. TPRND partnered with GiSC, a grower-owned data cooperative, to build the TPNRD-Water Data Program based around smart water meters at every irrigation well. It is a large-scale collaborative effort with TPNRD, GiSC, electric providers in the district, Olsson Civil Engineering, Paige Wireless and irrigators to make this happen. It is an opportunity for irrigators to tell their story and for TPNRD to gather the most extensive set of real-time pumping data ever accumulated utilizing IoT devices.

Using the Indicator Plant Method to Calculate Drip Emitter Requirements

The typical landscape bed is designed with plants having different irrigation water requirements, yet they are all on one irrigation zone. This webinar will use the indicator plant method of selecting the flow and quantity of emitters per plant-water-use type to apply the required amount of water for each plant. This method can also be used for line source drip and even mixing different types of overhead irrigation. (Don’t tell the irrigation police!)
