Since 1965, the Texas Irrigation Association (formerly the Texas Turf Irrigation Association) has been serving Texas irrigation professionals. Joining TXIA puts you ahead of the game and lets your customers know you are serious about your profession. Don't wait...join today!
Welcome to the website for the Texas Irrigation Association (formerly Texas Turf Irrigation Association). TXIA is the state level industry association for licensed irrigation professionals in Texas. The Texas Irrigation Assoication works to promote the business success and professionalism of its members through education, legislative advocacy, networking, and public relations. Persons active in the Texas irrigation industry are welcome and encouraged to join.
Some organizations encourage consumers to seek out certified irrigators to install and maintain their irrigation system. Is that enough? Does being certified qualify one to maintain and/or install irrigation systems? Not in Texas! While receiving additional education, certifications and water conservation related designations is great and advantageous for those in the irrigation industry, certifications are not enough for Texas irrigators, technicians, and inspectors.
Joe Morris, TXIA's legislative representative, has been working hard to keep TXIA informed with regards to the current legislative session. Texas' 86th Legislative Session kicked off in January and Joe has been keeping TXIA's Board of Directors abreast on items that could potentially affect the irrigation industry.
The Irrigation Advisory Committee will be holding a rules change work session on Wednesday, November 18th from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. This is in conjunction with the IAC petitioning the TCEQ to open Title 30 Chapter 344 rules for revision. For more information on TXIA's proposal, see the October issue of the TXIA Quarterly Newsletter article.
