January 5, 2011: Via the Department of Watershed Management — The Department of Watershed Management reminds its customers that irrigation systems should be shut down when the temperatures drop below freezing to prevent over spray from freezing on sidewalks and streets and causing accidents/injuries. Irrigation systems installed after 2007 must by law have rain sensors that shut the system down when it is raining or when temperatures fall below 32 degrees F.

You can have a professional shut your system down during the wintertime as well as have them install a rain sensor. Many companies, such as ours, also offer a spring start up as well to get your system back up and running after its been shut down all winter.
