    This year, 100% of the state’s legislature is up for election and IPAC wants to be 100% there for you in these unpredictable political times. In order to do that - to be an effective voice for you in Trenton, we need 100% participation from IANJ members in this year’s IPAC drive.

    Currently, if every member of the IANJ gave just $50 to IPAC, we would more than triple our treasury, making sure that your voice is heard in what is certain to be a very noisy election season.

    IPAC helps the Irrigation Association to be successful in all of that work and more. We are 100% in this for you, and we need each and every one of you to be 100% in this with us. Please join our 100 for 100 drive today and do your part to ensure New Jersey’s irrigation contractors will be heard in today’s noisy political landscape. No amount is too small…we want all to contribute to this important industry campaign.

    Governor Chris Christie has proclaimed July to be Smart Irrigation Month in New Jersey to draw attention to the importance of using water efficiently. July is traditionally the month of peak demand for watering lawns, gardens and landscapes in North America. This initiative is meant to increase public awareness about simple practices and innovative technologies homeowners, businesses and property managers can use to:

    Save money on utility bills.

    Minimize or defer investments in infrastructure to store and carry water, typically paid for by property taxes or municipal bonds.

    Protect their community's water supply for generations to come.

    Homeowners typically overwater lawns and landscapes by up to 30 percent. By selecting and planting carefully, watering wisely, and maintaining and upgrading automated irrigation systems, consumers can save money, save water and see better results.

    Four scholarship recipients were announced by the IANJ Board of Directors on May 30. “We were extremely pleased with the number of scholarship applications that we received and are proud of the students who are receiving these 2017 scholarships,” said IANJ President Roy Nau. $500 scholarship checks will be sent to four students.
