South Plains Irrigation Association Promotes Water Conservation

To promote water conservation, the South Plains Irrigation Association will present a $2000 scholarship in December thanks in part to the raffle of a TGB Outback 4-wheeler.

You may have seen it at the Home and Garden Show at the Civic Center back in March. And, the reason Abner is in the story is because he was the winner of the ATV in a drawing held earlier this week.

Association President Jay Townsend presented Abner the keys at Gander Mountain Thursday afternoon. He says the group is made up of licensed irrigators and landscapers. The Irrigators Association has about 75 members and has provided input to the city on its water conservation ordinances.
