What is a Turf Irrigation Water Management Program?
The TIMS Water Management Program is available to North Carolinians to calculate
and track irrigation use. Using the NC Climate Office current weather data, TIMS
can tell you in number of minutes how long to water your lawn.
Why Should You Use It?
Our hope is that after a few weeks of use, lawn owners will be able to save at least
25% of normal irrigation.
Why You Tell Others to Use it TOO
If 100,000 people use this program to schedule irrigation, North Carolina could
save millions of gallons of water and maintain healthier lawns. Just answer a few
simple questions about your lawn and start your water diary today!
