The Irrigation Evaluation Program is cooperatively funded by the Withlacoochee Regional Water Supply Authority (WRWSA), the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD), and your utility provider (VCCDD-LSSA or NSCUDD). The program provides FREE residential irrigation system evaluations to customers on an invitation only, first-come, first-served basis. Based on past evaluations, we believe the program could reduce your water use by 20% or more and result in lower water bills.

If you choose to participate, the irrigation system evaluator will:

  • run each zone identifying ways to improve water efficiency
  • create a map of the irrigation system for you to keep
  • provide written recommendations of improvements
  • install a rain sensor where a rain sensor is not present or is inoperable - acceptance of a functioning rain sensor is a requirement to participate in this program
  • provide education material on water conservation

If you would like to participate, please complete the application and the contractor will contact you to schedule a convenient time to visit your home.  The application can be completed online via the link below or you can complete the application enclosed with your letter and return it in the self-addressed envelope.

This is a by 'invitation only' offer available on a first-come, first-served basis.  Space is limited.  We hope you will consider participating.
