Year 8

In 2012, the Harlingen Irrigation District and partners in the project have shifted focus from trying out and verifying technologies and methodologies to new activities focused on outreach and education. A U.S. Bureau of Reclamation WaterSMART grant to subsidize the cost of surge valves for irrigation and training was awarded to Texas AWE because of our research findings that surge valve technology can significantly reduce water consumption across a variety of crops in the region.
