Monday | July 17, 2017 | 3:30 pm — 5:00 pm

EBMUD Administration Building, Training Room | 375 11th Street, 2nd Floor, Oakland, CA 94607

There are thousands of existing irrigation systems in California that waste water and/or water plants incorrectly and they need your help!

At the next Landscape Advisory Committee General Meeting, Lori Palmquist will discuss how to assess existing irrigation systems and outline a step-by-step approach to recommend irrigation system repairs, design upgrades, and watering schedule adjustments to improve your customer’s water efficiency. Data collection sheets and report templates will be provided.

Lori Palmquist is a landscape professional, specializing in irrigation and water efficiency in the landscape. She is a certified irrigation designer, contractor, auditor, water manager, and formerly a certified arborist. For the past 10 years, Lori has conducted irrigation and water-efficiency trainings for landscape professionals and homeowners. Lori is also a web app developer for Water Wonk.

The General Meeting will also include an update on State and EBMUD water supply and regulations, brief reports from the LAC Education and Outreach, Professional Development and Technology sub-committees. Free validated parking is available at the Pacific Renaissance Plaza garage right next door on Webster Street. Bring your token to the meeting and EBMUD will validate at the end of the meeting. Please note, there is no parking available in the EBMUD parking garage. Lite refreshments served.
