New Remote Controlled Water Systems at Port Noarlunga BC

by BowlsSA2 on April 24, 2020

Port Noarlunga Bowling Club recently completed a significant upgrade to its irrigation for its two grass greens.

Dragging 14 x 40 metre hoses and sprinklers for every irrigation is now a thing of the past. They have been replaced by 16 pop-up sprays (8 per green) connected to remote controlled timers. The greens can now be watered together, spray by spray or by selected groups of sprays at the optimum time (day or night) or specific nominated times.

D&D Curators installed the new irrigation system and will determine irrigation needs throughout the year. They will schedule watering to achieve maximum efficiency and usage for Members. As well as labour saving and risk reduction it is anticipated costly water usage will be reduced.

The project was made possible with funding from the “Building Stronger Communities” program, a Federal Government initiative with funds allocated to every Federal Electorate.

Amanda Rishworth, Member for Kingston, and her team provided strong support for The Club’s application.
