Fort Morgan Raises Bar on Waste Water Management

The city of Fort Morgan, Colo., experienced regular flooding caused by both rain and snow melt. To solve storm water issues and revitalize the historic Main Street, 18,000 feet of Pavestone Eco Priora 8 cm permeable pavers along Main Street were installed. Winter blend and limestone colored pavers were used to differentiate parking spaces and street markings. Already, sudden downpours that would have previously caused flooding have cleared the new drainage system with ease.

Water Smarter

Smart irrigation systems include controllers that can adjust schedules based on weather and soil moisture, valves with pressure regulation to prevent misting, and sprinklers that deliver more precise watering such as these from IrriGreen. Modeled after commercial inkjet printer nozzles, they have a digital valve-in-head, pop-up rotor with a 14-stream, multi-volume nozzle. As the sprinklers rotate, a server automatically adjusts stream direction, flow and distance to precisely place water on the turf. Each zone can have up to 50 mapping points.

Safe Sawing

While trimming trees with a chainsaw at his home, Hall of Fame golfer Greg Norman had just let go of the trigger when a heavy branch pulled his arm down into the blade that was still turning, missing his artery by a fraction of an inch but still damaging his wrist to the point that it took doctors almost a hour to repair it.
