The Irrigation Association (IA) is a nationwide organization whose membership includes: irrigation equipment and system manufacturers, dealers, distributors, designers, consultants, contractors and end users. Along with experts in the industry, the IA has been instrumental in defining Best Management Practices for efficient water management for landscape irrigation.
The Irrigation Association, through their Landscape Irrigation Best Management Practices, defines three best management practices for landscape irrigation:
- Design the irrigation system to efficiently use water resources.
- Install the irrigation system to meet the design criteria.
- Manage landscape water resources to maintain a healthy and functional landscape.
Like the Dallas Irrigation Association, the IA, promotes efficient landscape irrigation practices and educating the public on proper landscape irrigation applications and smart water management.
