Irrigation Company Seeks Water Conservation Winner



Rain Bird Corp. of Azusa, Calif., a manufacturer and provider of irrigation products and services, has created The Intelligent Use of Water Award to recognize outstanding contributions by individuals and/or organizations toward the advancement of landscape water conservation.

The award seeks to bring about greater knowledge and awareness of the need for water conservation by honoring those persons or organizations whose innovation, leadership, ingenuity, and overall commitment to improved landscape water efficiency have raised the standard for outdoor water conservation. The recipient of the 2007 award will receive $10,000 toward continuing landscape water conservation efforts, a trip to the 2008 Tournament of Roses Parade, and the opportunity to present water conservation solutions as a featured panelist at the company?s year-end summit in Pasadena, Calif.

Consumers and professionals (industry and non-industry) are encouraged to submit nominations by filling out a nomination form at www.rainbird.com/iuow/award.htm. Nominations will close on Sept. 1, 2007, and an independent panel of experts will select the winner based on their demonstrated leadership, innovation and implementation of water-efficient measures.

"As more and more demand is placed on the world's supply of usable water, the need has never been greater for more efficient irrigation, better landscape designs, and increased knowledge as it relates to reducing landscape water waste," said Dave Johnson, Rain Bird's director of corporate marketing. "Water use in parks, public places, golf courses and landscapes is under increased scrutiny, leaving it to professionals, businesses and everyday consumers to find and implement practical solutions that provide both economic and environmental benefits. By recognizing these achievements, we aim to inspire others to do the same."

Rain Bird is a member of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Alliance for Water Efficiency and the WaterSense steering committee
