On Tuesday, February 18, Water Star training will be held at the City of Titusville Fire Department Headquarters (550 S. Washington Avenue) in Titusville.
Training will be conducted by Kurt Thompson, lead Irrigation AP trainer for Florida Water Star. Mr. Thompson has spent more than 35 years in the irrigation industry and is a nationally recognized author and collaborator of certification and training manuals and programs.

“Helping landscape, irrigation, and lawn service professionals understand how their services directly affects the environment is vital to water conservation and helping to protect the Indian River Lagoon,” explained Maureen Phillips, Titusville’s Water Conservation & Public Outreach Manager. “Changing how we care for yards and green spaces directly affects our water sources and the health of the environment.”
Attendees will receive water conservation giveaways and lunch will be provided. Seating is limited and pre-registration and payment in advance is required.
