Crookhaven Sporting Fields receives $125,000 irrigation system
July 29, 2011
Shoalhaven City Council has recently completed the design and construction of a $125,000 automatic irrigation system for the Crookhaven Sporting Fields.
The new system has provided a marked improvement on playing surface conditions and maintained a higher level of performance for the venue.
The completed works include the installation of an automated irrigation system, irrigation controller, pumping system, sprinkler reticulation and ancillary system components.
Shoalhaven City Council Director of City Services and Operations, Bill Paterson said the new irrigation system would allow for a year round, higher quality playing surface.
“An objective under Council’s Community Strategic Plan is to provide for a healthy and active community,” said Mr Paterson.
“This new irrigation system will ensure a consistently high quality playing surface for these extremely well utilised playing fields.
“Under the new system, defined quantities of irrigation can be delivered on a set cycle while the inclusion of a weather station ensures the system adjusts irrigation programs accounting for rain and wind conditions.”
The project was completed in May 2011.
