Do your sprinklers need a check-up?
Arlington Water Utilities and Tarrant Regional Water District provide a limited number of FREE sprinkler system evaluations for Arlington residents each year to encourage efficient water use. When you sign up, a local licensed irrigation specialist will perform a 45 minute evaluation of your sprinkler system to check to see how it is operating and provide recommendations for improvements. This program is not a sales pitch for additional contracting services and you will be under no pressure to make specific changes.Click here to sign up.
