Recruiting Cooperators for Surge Valve Grant Project

  • June 11, 2013
  • With irrigation water in tight supply these days, smart growers are looking for cost-effective ways to make every drop count. The Surge Valve Cooperative is a new initiative of the Rio Grande Regional Water Authority (RGRWA) aimed at putting surge valves to work in the Lower Rio Grande Valley. The RGRWA has just been awarded a WaterSMART grant from the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation that will offset the cost of surge valves for up to 32 volunteer cooperators in an extended demonstration of the technology.
