Last week was the quarterly meeting of the Georgia WaterWise Council in Canton, Georgia (July 23, 2013). After the meeting Tom Shannon showed us around Ewing Irrigation. Tom recently won the Phil Karr Water Wise Award that recognizes an individual that has made a great contribution to water conservation in Georgia. Essentially, it is a lifetime achievement award. We were honored to have him show us around! Plus, aside from giving your landscape a “Sprinkler Spruce Up”, there is no better way to celebrate “Smart Irrigation Month” than to learn about an irrigation company that has been around for 90 years.
Thank you Ewing Irrigation and Tom Shannon for being good stewards of water here in Georgia!
