Labor Day 2014 in the World of Water Management

Labor Day 2014Thank you to all the people who work hard in the world of water management.



To the Irrigation Technicians, Irrigation Supervisors, Irrigation Manufacturers and all the people who do the work in the field to help ensure we only use the water we need…Thank You! May you have a safe and restful Labor Day weekend.

Sourcing informative, interesting, relevant information about irrigation and water management is a challenging task, but pales in comparison to the hard work that takes place in the field. These men and women work hard each week and truly make a difference every day in the world of water conservation and irrigation management. Thank you for the fine work you do every day (and sometimes at night for emergencies)

Here are a few very entertaining or useful videos about water conservation and irrigation management to help you pass the time on this Labor Day Weekend. Help make these videos go viral this weekend by sharing this post on Facebook, Twitter or your favorite social channel.
