IRWD Sponsors Water Conservation Contest

In honor of Fix a Leak Week, March 17-23, IRWD will be hosting a contest for residents who become Leak Detectives and check their sprinklers and outdoor landscape for leaks.

Contest Rules

Throughout March:

  • Submit a photo* to featuring you checking your sprinklers for leaks. If you find a leak, fix it.   
  • We'll mail you an IRWD CALscape Kit.**
  • All photo participants will also be entered into a drawing to win a gift card to one of our WaterSense partners: The Home Depot or Lowe's. First prize is $500, second prize at $300 and third prize at $100.    

Now through March 30, IRWD customers can also  pick up a free sprinkler key** at IRWD offices (15600 Sand Canyon Ave., Irvine) to help reduce overspray from sprinklers.
