SALT LAKE CITY — "Slow the Flow, Save H20," the state’s water conservation campaign, is joining with water providers to offer free analyses of automated sprinkler irrigation systems.

Trained evaluators will perform the checks at homes, businesses or institutions, and the results will provide a customized irrigation schedule. Soil type, grass root depth, sprinkler distribution uniformity and water pressure will also evaluated. The entire process will take approximately an hour to 90 minutes.
