The Intelligent Use of Water – Community Educational Classes
Let’s talk water. Spring, summer and fall are the seasons we generally see our water consumption increase in conjunction with the many different projects and activities around our homes and businesses.
Beginning in May, our Parks Director will be hosting educational water classes to help you understand your irrigation system, and conserve water as well as money. These meetings will cover topics like: how often you should water, planting, fertilization and weed control.
We hope you will join us at one of the six dates available (May 8, June 12, July 10, Aug 14, Sep 11, Oct 9). Meetings will be held the 2nd Wednesday of each month beginning in May and going through October. Meet at the City of Ammon building located at 2135 S. Ammon Rd at 7:00 pm!
