"Smart" Irrigation can Save Hoosiers Time and Money

Watering the lawn may seem like a simple task, but experts say without the proper knowledge, you may be wasting time and money.

It’s Smart Irrigation Month, and Hoosiers are encouraged to conserve water.

Anthony Swinger with the Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselor says while the state is not currently facing drought-related issues, consumers should always be conscious about using water efficiently.

Swinger says there is such a thing as “over watering,” and most lawns typically only need to be watered once a week.

He adds that those with automatic sprinkler systems should learn about

newer technologies that can make their system operate more effectively.
