Citrus County wants its residents to begin thinking about their landscapes and water as summer approaches. 

The county's utility department is offering a Irrigation 101 training. 

Irrigation 101 offers the basics of operating an irrigation system in a Florida landscape.

Residents also can find out how much water to apply during summer months vs. winter, discover simple maintenance tips and learn about local soils and plant water needs.

The May 17 class is sold out but interested residents can email to sign up for future classes.
