Irrigation Workshop a hit with irrigators

Approximately 75 irrigation customers attended our first Irrigation Workshop at the Grant County Fairgrounds, Dec. 11, in what promises to become an annual or biennial (every two years) event.

Grant PUD subject-matter experts talk about Grant PUD's 2020 budget — which includes no rate increase for the second consecutive year — our expectations for future growth and plenty of nuts-and-bolts advice for getting pumps hooked up to power, passing state inspections, staying safe around power lines, bill-paying options and more. The group enjoyed a lunch catered by Moses Lake's Michael's on the Lake, raffle prizes and an electrical-safety demonstration by a Grant PUD line crew.

Irrigators questioned said they thought the event was worthwhile, and would recommend it to others. That's great news for getting our safety message out to these important Grant PUD customers.
