Help Improve Water Efficiency for Farmers with NGWA Five-Step Process To help keep the water flowing in the future, the Irrigation Association and NGWA teamed together to reach the nation's 121,000 farms using 476,000 irrigation wells to educate users how the following five steps will enhance water effi- ciency, as well as reduce energy consumption at the wellhead, thus impacting water use in electricity generation. 1. Well design 2. Well development 3. Water use calculation and management 4. Pump selection 5. Well operation and maintenance. On March 22, World Water Day, NGWA kicked off a campaign on social media to promote awareness of well efficiency among the agricultural irrigation community and to reach out to water well system professionals. Find out more at the following link and feel free to share it on your social media outlets at NGWA.org/HelpingAgriculture. Maintenance Contract to Help Increase Revenue Created by NGWA Routine maintenance can not only lead to a well system running efficiently for years but increase revenue when contractors have maintenance contracts with their customers. As such, the General Contract for Residential Water Well Inspection and Maintenance is a new item created and now available from NGWA. The product goes over the terms necessary to create an an- nual maintenance services contract and provides details on all the necessary parts of such a contract. It includes a workable contract with blank spaces so contrac- tors can fill in their own information for their use with their customers. Also included are four articles from Water Well Journal, which detail the impor- tance of having such contracts that can grow revenue for contracting firms. Using such contracts can increase revenue by locking in residential water well inspection and maintenance work. It is a downloadable item and free to NGWA members in the NGWA Bookstore at www.NGWA.org.
