Automatic irrigation AT THE GARDEN

Drip Irrigation

Spring Automatic Irrigation Schedule:                                 Every other day, water will automatically turn on and run for 30 minutes at 6:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., and 4:00 p.m. 

 

 

To utilize the automatic watering system, simply leave the water valve in your plot open. If you need additional water, please use the hoses located on all sides of the garden. If you are not ready for your Spring garden, keep the water valve closed so your plot won't be watered. Contact osalazar@maranaAZ.gov for more info.
