Training and Outreach 

As Northern Water expands its Water Efficiency Program offerings, we are leveraging resources with other entities to provide educational opportunities for landscape professionals, those who oversee commercial landscapes, and the general public. These classes and training aim to give attendees a deeper understanding of many topics, including the plant-soil-water relationship, plant water requirements, landscape water budgeting and irrigation management, among others. In addition to classes and exams through the Irrigation Association, other special classes are hosted throughout the year.
