    Landscape irrigation utilizes 67% of Utah’s municipal water resources.  Often, however, too much water is applied resulting in waste of precious water resources.

    The Water Check program was created in 1999 to help Utahn’s irrigate more efficiently, resulting in water savings AND healthy, attractive landscapes.

    A Water Check analyzes the efficiency of automated irrigation systems and provides customized irrigation schedules to participants. 

     “This free program is a wonderful example of cooperation between USU Extension, water providers, and the citizens of Utah.  The support of the participating water districts and cities has allowed USU Extension to reach out to the public in a very big way.”

     – Dr. Kelly Kopp,

    Water Check Program Administrator
